I can take this time

| Video

It's the Friday update! I'm about to take two weeks of leave from New Coyote, and I'm feeling really blessed that we're in a position where I can take this time and feel like everything will be fine. The last time we were having trouble as a business, I did a lot of work to separate my sense of self-worth from my work ethic, and that process has done a lot to make it easier to step back and focus on my personal life when it's necessary.

As I said on Monday, during my break I'll be thinking about how to use social media/YouTube to do what I actually want, which is to foster a real community. We'll see if I come up with anything when I come back!

How did you do on your intentions, and what actions are you taking that have been helping you? Put them below and don't forget to have a weekend!

If you want to keep up with me while I’m on leave, here’s some places I might be:
