morning babble / Wednesday 02-09-22
This is the scribble that leads to the babble. Sometimes, it gets tidied up; but other times, not so much. When all else fails: watch the video!
Day 2 of the 3 Day Fast
You know the best thing about today – that I can say that I can eat tomorrow!
Tomorrow at 5:59PM – the fast ends. Just coffee, tea, water – that’s it.
Right now – I’m in the “headachey” phase. Nothing brutal or full blown, but the head is clearing out basically. I explain it as the fog is lifting. This is my favorite times of the fast besides the part of ending it with a bite of food or swig of beverage.
326 days until EXIT PLAN
This past weekend, I was reminded of a forgotten trick and it’s such an easy one to do.
The secret to make sure you actually act on something – to follow through. How do you do it – Count down backward from 5 to 1. As soon as you hit 1, move. Matt D’Avella. His header to an email that I received was “Stop procrastinating in 5 seconds.” I knew who taught him that right away and as he always does he gave credit throughout it all – Mel Robbins. I’ve heard her on 2 podcasts with Chase Jarvis.
Anyway, Matt breaks it down nicely and it’s true – any task: waking up / jumping into a cold shower / Hitting the call button / Envision the task and then count down backward from 5 to 1. Visit Matt’s website and sign up for his newsletter and you’ll receive short weekly emails on minimalism, habits, and productivity.
Please subscribe on YouTube and spread the Babble wherever you can – Thank you!
