morning babble: Setting some goals and hitting them OR . . . folding clothes? / Marcus Aurelius quote

morning babble / Monday 09-19-22

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!

Happy Monday! Push it through and make it that – a happy day.

I already Jiu-Jitsu’d today. A little bit of a struggle this morning though. I ran twice this weekend. First time – on the mill. Second time – outside. Plantar Fasciitis – still there.

I will be running with the team from my kid’s old school – NCCL – in the Faithful Friends 5k Run at Bellevue State Park this Sunday, September 25th.

104 days until EXIT PLAN


Learned from Derek Sivers

Two ways of setting goals for yourself

  1. Driven by dissatisfaction – raise the bar / Accept the dissatisfaction until the goal is hit
  2. Or lower the bar to feel satisfaction throughout until you hit the overall goal

Struggling to get something done . . . if you’re at home, this is easy. Fold clothes and put them away. A sense of accomplishment will be achieved and will help propel you onto the next task. Put dishes away that are now clean from the overnight dishwasher cleaning.

Please subscribe on YouTube and spread the Babble wherever you can – Thank you!
