morning babble / Monday 11-07-22
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 – back at it!
By way – all weekend, I wrote each day. Even after the Phillies lost the World Series on Saturday night. Plenty of beverages in and wanting bed badly – I still wrote.
Beginning my 3-Day Fast tonight after dinner. I so need this for so many reasons. The primary one is my recent addiction to the Cookie Butter Cold Brew from Dunkin. That’s a dessert in a cup. I will get one more today . . . because I can.

GOAL SETTING MONDAY & REVIEW –
Last week, I had 4 paperwork days. The most that I have had in a long, long time. I am the most caught up and the most prepared for this upcoming week. BUT – I still was digging into work whenever I had spare moments this weekend. I didn’t mean for it to be that way, but I continued finding myself cracking open the laptop to do something for work – not for me personally, not the book, not other writing, but work for the business.
I’m having trouble stopping it. For the most part, I’ve done all the proper things with my phone settings. People can’t reach out to me late – but there are “emergency” ways. I don’t check email late nor first thing in the morning. I haven’t done it yet today. Baby steps to avoiding the job.
Now, I want to do a good job . . . actually, a great job, but that doesn’t mean it should own me. and THAT has been my battle.
On the flip-side, this forcing me to do 30 minutes of writing every night has been an eye opener for me. 1) I look forward to it. 2) I’m getting something done that I want to get done personally. I enjoy writing this.
What am I getting at? I need to keep creating limitations on work – it’s not healthy for me nor the business. I also need to set minimum limits on the goals for other things that I want to be doing.
