Remember last week when I was whining about the winter? Well, I’m still whining. Maybe even more now. I would really enjoy some warm sunshine right now more than ever.
My motivation level is low. I attended one of the WAM meetings last Thursday and at least found comfort in discovering that I wasn’t alone. Everyone was sharing about how they just aren’t completing the tasks they want to. Together, we came up with a neat little exercise to help each other with this. We each set ourselves goals that we were going to accomplish over the next two weeks and consequences if we did not complete them. All with the agreement that we were going to hold each other accountable. Personally, I committed to going to gym every single day for two weeks and I have failed already so I won’t be allowed to go out for any evening entertainment for two weeks with the exception of pool league and date night with Michele. I guess I’ll use that extra time to spend even more time at the gym. Even though I didn’t make it, I am still trying to get to the gym as much as possible until the next meeting so as not to completely embarrass myself. I like what having others to help hold me accountable does for me.
I did have a good week though. The West Richmond Businessmen’s Association dinner on Monday night had a great speaker, perfect prime rib and it was nice to spend some time catching up with some of the guys I hadn’t seen in a while. Tuesday night I started playing league pool again and kicked it off with an exciting two and a half hour match. A normal match probably last about thirty to forty five minutes but Cedric and I played a very strategic chess match. I did come out victorious but it was as close to a tie as you could get. Wednesday night I hung out with an old friend and Thursday evening I attended a seminar on everything you wanted to know about selling a house on your own by WAM member Steven Quigley. That was very informative, keep an eye out because he will be offering more of them. I met again with an up and coming entrepreneur, another who has been in business a year and is doing well and spent almost four hours with one who is going through some major struggles. Friday I didn’t something crazy and stood outside in the cold weather at the newest Mission BBQ in Colonial Heights so I could be one of the first 100 people through the line and receive over $500 in gift certificates. Anyone want to go to Mission BBQ? LOL. And of course, I ate breakfast with Dad almost everyday and had a couple great evenings with Michele.
Again, I am so thankful for the help I received to have the freedom I have to do the things I do.
Check out the tip of the week from Roger Brasell and I’ll talk to you again next week.
