Monday morning Journaling for a great week!

This crazy mind of mine….

I hate freewriting it is such a pain. Putting my head of confusion on paper…more painful than just being frustrated with a solid dose of cabin fever.

I am in no threatened space. No tiger is about to eat me. Yet, I feel like I am being eaten by two sides — the fear of being miserable and unproductive and cranky and homebound, and an internet social media slave.

On the other hand, fearing for the safety of my future — may be an even greater threat. And less of a topic that I want to really talk about.

Deep breaths Mark and beautiful people — -you got this. Do I research how to use a part-time job the best? How to leverage having people around me and becoming a local celebrity who refuses to stay hidden?

But so many decisions on a Monday morning with a mind that hates being overwhelmed with decisions.

Solutions — - Break it Down

List the decisions

List the alternatives

Do a little — not a lot — of research

Pull the trigger

Set up a week full of meetings

Write down what will give you Maximum Momentum!!!

Write down — what will drain Momentum

Actually, list — cool outside things that will give Dopamine hits

Massage, Spanish classes — with a combo teacher that can have real talks within Spanish — then speak English. It could be a travel support opportunity.

Don’t have other people run your life

Don’t be dependent on other people to support you. A sad and cruel relaxation but we can work around it. Not perfect but keeping the focus on the big things makes you a winner.

Needs — Write them down and live by them. They are your only True North

I need community out of the house

I need a regular schedule so that I can be successful and have a rewarding beginning, middle, and end.

I need people to know me if I’m to continue my significant life
