Sometimes you just have to plow through it.
Esther, keep helping; keep solving problems. The most valuable people today are those who solve high value problems.
Welcome to May. Wish you a productive month.
Today I closed a chapter in my professional life. Saying goodbye to a client is not always easy and sometimes the circumstances make it harder to bear and produce a level of uncertainty and anxiety. But in the midst of uncertainty there can be opportunity. One must learn the lessons that are there to be learned and seize the opportunity to build again, stronger and more effective than before. If you are not overcome by it, it will only make you more resilient.
When the world is falling down all around you, just let it fall. But you, keep on trudging. Keep your vision in-front of you and, come hell or high-water, keep on moving.
If there was ever a formula for succeeding in anything you want to do, it would be this:
Commitment + Focus + Execution = Goal attainment
Of course there are other factors that come into play such has having the right knowledge about what and how to execute and reviewing progress and learning from mistakes, but at its core, attaining your goals comes down to the level to which you deliver on these three things: commitment, focus, and execution.
Extraordinary lives are not marked by ease but by conviction and courage; even in the midst of fear, doubt and uncertainty–pexfa
Sleeping in a completely dark room is one of the best things you can do to improve the quality of your sleep. When summer rolls around and it stays lighter a lot later, or if you live on street where there are lots of street lamps, this can be difficult to achieve. Most blackout curtains or blinds don’t do a great job of blocking out all the light. You may need an additional way solution to combine with your existing curtains.
Here’s what I’ve found really helps.
April’s week 4/5 was productive. I achieved my main highlight for the week. The things that helped are:
- Focus — other things had to take a back seat so that I could immerse myself in executing and shipping. Lesson learned is that sometimes if you want to get something done, you need to hunker down and be willing to let other things get out of kilter for a while.
April… you have been a mixed bag.
I’m grateful for the sunshine and longer days that you’ve brought with you. But you remain shrouded in mystery and even more uncertainty.
As you begin your exit from future and present to past, I will probably not remember you except for the uncertainty that you bestowed.
