morning babble Wednesday 08-25-21
This is the scribble that leads to the babble. Sometimes it gets tidied up, but sometimes . . . not so much. When all else fails – go watch the video!
So, I had my first Pumpkin Spice Latte yesterday at Starbucks and it was delish. However, I missed something! Did you hear about the Apple Crisp Macchiato? Layered with flavors of apple and brown sugar — like the filling of an apple pie — with espresso, steamed milk, and “caramelized-spiced apple drizzle.” Let’s go! I’d say that I’d be getting it today, but I’m in a part of New Jersey today where I’ll be lucky to get internet service. In turn, Starbucks are no where to found either. I must stress that it’s a part of Jersey – I’m not picking on all of it. Plus, I’m allowed, I was born there. Total off the grid though for about 3 to 4 hours today – it’s crazy.
Countdown to 15,000 words – I did some last night. Not much at all, but it was something. Time ended up not being on my side, but I went through my whole routine and added some more words to one of the chapters that I hadn’t touched – it was basically an idea. It’s more than an idea right now.
On the treadmill, I was listening to a Tim Ferriss podcast with Jim Collins – older one. Jim has a 20 minute rule for sleeping. Watch my video!
I ran – #237 of 5K runs.
Ryan Holiday – who has a new book coming out next month (9/28) – Courage Is Calling: Fortune Favors the Brave.
Reminder: I’m doing the 5K run for the St. Jude Walk/Run in Philadelphia on Saturday, September 25th. I’ve joined the team – XTU to the Maxx – which is with Charlie Maxx who you can hear middays on 92.5 XTU.
