Yay for Mondays!

I have Dan Miller’s book “No More Dreaded Mondays” but I haven’t read it yet.

Do you want to know why?

Because I have been working way too much lately.

Won’t get into details but the consequences of this are that I gained a lot of weight, I suddenly can’t sleep, I can’t seem to get anything done, I feel tired all the time and sometimes I even feel I can’t breathe.

It has become that bad (and embarrassing too).

Not Knowing When To Stop Working

The worst of all, is that even though I think I’m “working a lot” it is not showing off in the front end of anything I’m doing.

So I took a quick time out to look at myself from a different perspective and I think I may have found the problem (or the solution more likely). 

Changing The Order Of The Factors Does Change The Product

When times are not right, I think I should just accept that and move on but being the stubborn mule that I am, I always try to make anything work even if it feels I’m on a hidden camera show (read Fail Rollercoaster and you’ll see why).

I’m still not sure what the order should be for important things like business, health, relationships, etc., but I think that health should definitely come at least on the first places right?

Well I left my health for last place a while ago and now my body has just started to raise red flags everywhere.

This is exactly the least that I needed right now but not all is lost.

There’s Light at the End of the Tunnel

I really don’t know what happened in me but I used to be a professional quitter not long ago (I mean some years, I’m not talking last week… lol).

I was that type of person that started a lot of things and never finished anything but somehow that just stopped happening.

Maybe I got sick on the inside, I really don’t know but I think I got tired of being me.

I’ll have to do some extra thinking on this but right now it is irrelevant, what it is relevant is that I took action today.

I stopped every single (marketing) thing that I had to do today and on the afternoon I decided to go for a run.

Endorphines… Where Were You?

I felt incredible.

I am feeling a bit sore right now (ran a lot more than I should) but I still feel fantastic.

I even recorded a video (I look like shit but it’s part of what I told you above)

March 19 Run Update

The Missing Link

Tomorrow I’m finally receiving the last missing link (a solid state hard drive) for the new computer and hopefully I’ll be installing everything by tomorrow at night.

If everything goes as planned (it never does) I predict to be able to do some test runs on the new computer on Wednesday and if I don’t fry anything (please Murphy Laws, let me LIVE a little!) then I’ll be able to do the first recordings for my first product…

So I am really speechless about this whole thing right now.

A lot more has happened in these past weeks (good things, bad things, everything) but right now THIS is the most important thing.

I am posting this update right now because my intentions are to publish something else tomorrow. I’ll get a little bit more active here so you can expect to see some changes or more publications these days.

Take care and speak soon!

PS. No call to action today (sorry for that, I need to take action myself)
