Each week I make an intentional effort for at least 1 day to disconnect. No computers. No emails. Sunday is usually that day. This time allows me to be fully present with family without the distractions or expectations of accomplishing work related tasks or communication.
This week is a little different. This week, I committed to a 7 day challenge hosted by Winnie Kao, Special Projects lead for Seth Godin, to ship content each day for 7 days. (You can click here to view my 7 day journey.)
There is always a reason to complain. When we search for it, we find it.
There is always a reason to celebrate. When we search for it, we find it.
The more time we spend searching for one, the less time we send search for the other.
It’s a choice. Our choice.
For Day 5 of Winnie’s #YourTurnChallenge, to post fresh content for 7 straight days, I’ve decided to share about a unique concept that’s gaining traction around Atlanta, GA. Warning: Motorcycle puns are present.
The highways and byways of Atlanta, GA are growling with excitement as a community of moto-curious and moto-crazed are being connected. The team that is championing this renaissance of road rumblers is known as Brother Moto.
I was inspired yesterday while reading a post from Ahmad Munawar, a fellow participant of the #YourTurnChallenge. In his post, he participates in a goal setting approach I really connected with. The idea is very simple; champion 3 words to frame your behaviors and intentions for the coming year.
My computer crashed this week.
A 2 1/2 year old Mac Pro. Unanticipated, instant video card death in the middle of the work day. I was stranded.
It was on Day 1 of a challenge from Winnie Kao, the Special Projects Lead for Seth Godin, to ship fresh content every day for seven days. This challenge and 99% of my job as a developer require regular access to a computer.
While the wound is still fresh, though my (new) computer is now online, I thought it would be helpful to share a practice that helped soften the hit and made a huge difference getting me running again.
There are unending opportunities championing for our time.
Foolishly, we give it away too cheap.
Winnie Kao, special projects lead for Seth Godin issued a challenge: Ship content every day for 7 days.
I’ve jump on board for three reasons.
People do things every day in the face of fear. It’s called courage.
Fear is not the issue.
