It’s been 6 months since I started the “So Good They Can’t Ignore You” kick. I didn’t really live up to my deliverables, but I think I got exactly what I wanted out of it. Sometimes, when you turn a quarter of a century, you figure out a thing or two about stuff.
One thing I realized about myself: I always want to win. I don’t need to push myself even harder than I already do. If anything, I need to push myself to take breaks (because that’s when the breakthroughs/really good ideas happen). Another lesson I have learned over the past 6 months: vacation is IMPORTANT. The day you get up and don’t want to go to work, that’s when you know you need a vacation. Because right after you take a day or two off, you’re just as pumped as ever.
I have always loved reading, and I always will. And whenever I have a problem that I don’t know a solution to, I go online, purchase a book, and read it. And guess what: I usually come up with the answer to my problem. (I mean, I didn’t necessarily come up with it, but the smart people who write these books sure do). Books are my guru, and that will never change. I always like reading to stay on top of my game. Sometimes, other things take priority, and you don’t have a chance to read as much as you want to. But I know that if it is humanly possible, I will make it happen.
So in conclusion, I’ve realized that I am ALWAYS trying to be so good they can’t ignore you. I always have, and I always will be.
I also realized that I don’t necessarily want to be the best. I just want to know that I’ve TRIED my best (two vastly different things). I know that sounds really hippie like (and I generally don’t like hippie talk), but at the end of the day, it’s sort of true.
I’m doing the best that I can, and that makes me really happy.
