I had a successful week. Took lots of action and got a bunch of things done:
- Published 15 low-content books and 14 of them went live as well. I now have a total of 30 LC books published.
- Finished reading four books.
- Worked out four times and meditated daily (I’ve been doing meditations by Joe Dispenza mostly).
- Spent time journaling and working through some difficult emotional challegnes that have come up recently. I had a fruitful discussion with my therapist and now feel like I’m in a much better place. I used to not count this sort of effort as being productive but now I know better.
I did all this while also taking plenty of downtime. I’m glad that I’m at a point where I value balance a lot more than just being in go mode. I got salon work done that had been pending for a while. I finished watching Schitt’s Creek which is perhaps the best show I’ve seen to date. I also had a few wonderful 1-1 calls.
Overall, I’m really happy with how the week turned out.
Value for week # 30 – Decisiveness
I chose this value to build on the momentum I’ve created over the last seven days. Despite the fact that I took a lot of action, I found that I sometimes got stuck in the ‘what should I do next’ or ‘how should I do this’ zone. I think there’s value in deliberation but when it goes into the realm of overthinking, it’s more of a hindrance than anything. And I often overthink.
I’d like to have the experience of deciding quickly for a week, whatever it might be about. I don’t think seven days of not deliberating will derail me in any way. I need to say this out loud because this actually is something that worries me – that I might do something stupid if I decide too fast. You can imagine how much overthinking is ingrained in me, haha.
So here’s what I’m going to do – I’m going to give myself 60 seconds to make any and every decision. I can always change things up later if I want to.
I’m off to a good start. I booked a massage for myself in less than a minute today. Normally, this sort of decision would have taken me ages!
Let’s see how this week goes. 🙂
