Quotes of the week:
“Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.” Soren Kierkegaard
“Money is a perfectly legitimate measurement of goods sold or services rendered. But it is no calculation of value… Value is a feeling, not a calculation. It is perception.” Simon Sinek
Busy week at work and now things are picking up. Noteworthy happenings? Last trivia night with Steve and Christine at the Beat (sad) and I’ve done a spectacular amount of doing nothing this weekend which has been kind of awesome. Thought about heading out of town, and I decided not to. Surprisingly. Oh, I did go on a llama parade on Friday night.
1) Blog consistently.
Lots more food reviews because of restaurant week and other nonsense. A couple of other pieces in the works, including one on entrepreneurship, happiness, and health.
2) Get outdoors.
Not this week. Sort of.
3) Continue to make my position evolve.
Finalizing some things on this front this week. And the new folks will be placed. And I had a really good conversation with someone who mentioned that I’m “Incredibly good at doing (executing) things that you don’t like to do.” Which is a good skill to have, but something I should keep in mind for myself.
4) Read more.
Finished a Brief History of Thought and Start With Why. Working on Ungifted and A Devil’s Chaplain.
5) Stay in touch with people better.
Talked to Ariana, Amber, Amanda, and Emily. Also saw Brian. And Las Vegas friends. The last of which is kind of an accomplishment simply because in the last 4 months, I’ve been in town for four full weekends.
6) Finish up my obligations in Chapel Hill.
Waiting for my next round of revisions still. Maybe I should push that button again…
7) Run the half or full marathon in Las Vegas this November.
Went hiking. Going running tomorrow.
8) Get 7 hours of sleep a night.
Doing much better on this front. According to SleepCycle I got 100% quality for my sleep the last couple of nights.
