It is day 7 of the Suitcase Entrepreneur 30-days blog challenge, and I feel very proud of myself for keeping up with the daily posts. Yeah! I have gone on an adventure – a self-exploratory one, looking at my internal thought processes and how this is acted out in my day-to-day life and business. It is interesting how this very morning, I was reading a FaceBook post about how you react and behave in situations shows the person you are. This made me wonder, when I did not go through with things in the past, was I presenting that I was just a dreamer – not an action taker! It is powerful looking back at YOU.
What do I do?
This question today really HIT me, in terms that it was delving much deeper into my psyche. It could have easily been rephrased to, “tell me what it is that you really do, on a day-to-day basis?” I can easily have started this post by jumping into what resources and techniques that I should be applying in my personal and business life. For you as my audience, you would have been none the wiser. This is not to say that there is no method in what I do.
In today’s resources on Natalie Sisson’s page, there were some useful articles and tools on your mind and body. I liked how she reminded me of how you cannot forget about your wellbeing, on this journey of building a freedom lifestyle and adventure. Today, I downloaded iYoga App, as well as listening to the calming and soothing voice of Susan Piver.
Sometimes with me playing the busybody, I may forget to self-love. Look after my mind and body. How can I not self-love? So I realised in this exercise that I have to add into my schedule more power-walks and treat days.
Write it down
I like to write my thoughts and ideas on to post-it notes, or the Evernote App when it first hits me. I usually have this latter one open most of the times on my Mac Book Air. In terms of projects, when I start to form an idea, I will map it out in PowerPoint as it helps me to go through the logic. I realised today that when I look at the bigger picture, or “higher-level” view of the details as they would describe in business, that I tended to keep it all in my head. So this made me feel like the lady who lived in her head. I must place all these visions all on my vision board.
Hello Again Mr Bento
With the 3 current projects I have, it is amazing how I have been working on them simultaneously. I realised today that I should be having more conversations with my Bento. This can lead to better utilisation of my time, plus it’s a nice feeling to see the words: complete and accomplished.
