Lots of stress points coming in from different directions, but after a good amount of time to digest it, I’m better able to cope with it. I realize that the pressure is coming from within myself and the deadlines I set for myself.
With school coming over the horizon in a few short weeks, I have to have my game face on and attack it with everything I’ve got. I finished Cal Newport’s book “How to Become a Straight-A Student” to get myself re-acquainted with the mindset. I just have to register for the damn course, which has been the most ass-backward sign up process I’ve ever come across.
Family life should be a bit better now that renovations are done. It’s just a matter of re-arranging shit. With other family obligations coming up now, I’ve got to be a little more resourceful and only time will tell as to how things will work out (as cliche as it sounds).
I’ll just have to push-back my timeline unless I get a windfall of a cash infusion. Patience is definitely a virtue in terms of overcoming this obstacle.
Financial Freedom – things are on track. Just have keep spend less than I make and pay down a high percentage of my pay cheque. Once I don’t have it, that’s it. No more fun time lol.
Fitness Phenomenon – while I went to Crossfit Toronto 3 days straight, I feel that my running fitness is really lacking. I don’t think I should feel winded during my runs. My endurance sucks and I’m just huffing and puffing during the last round when I’m running for time. I should start running longer distances for speed.
SEO/Career – learning every day, as usual. Client load is getting a bit more challenging. I just have to be smarter with how I work, utilizing Parkinson’s Law and the 80/20 rule. Things will be looking up.
Adobe Illustrator – I only checked in once last week. Argh! It’s tough having a tricky schedule with work.
