It's time for the Thursday update, the video I make on Thursday to tell you how I did on the intentions I set on Monday.
Let's get into it.
- Remember stress makes me less productive: I realized that the stress I feel around doing well is rooted in my core value of integrity. Which, duh. But also, no wonder I'm feeling it so deeply! This is a core part of my identity, of course it's important to me. However, I can honor this value in less destructive ways.
- Ask for what I need: I did this and I have a lot of good leads for interesting and energizing projects and clients that I really like.
- People first: I did this well. I also tired myself out a so I'm going to to split my days going forward; making connections in the first part of and doing work and admin in the latter part. That should give me some balance.
I also realized that, even with all the pressure that I'm putting on myself to succeed, I'm still living my ideal life. I get to take off early and go watch a sunset with my husband if I feel like it, I get to make time for my family, and I'm working on interesting projects that I'm excited about. If you'd told me this time last year that this would be my life today, I don't think I would have believed you. I'm extremely grateful for what I have.
