So Good They Can’t Ignore You: The End of the Beginning

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.
