The alarm went off at 3:15am this morning. Welcome to the grind indeed.
I had to make sure there were plenty of hours to put today into the masterpiece category.
Then again, have you ever read something that was timely in just the right way? I started reading “The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck” today by Mark Manson.
Which is funny because the last few days I have written about making our days into masterpieces, a pursuit that requires decidedly more fucks than none.
My main takeaway thus far has been the absolute necessity of determining what goals are important to us and why. Deciding on our noblest pursuits gives us the courage and energy to take action.
In my own experience, this decision is what led to Ship30for30, which has transformed the way I interact with the world.
Aside from gaining some knowledge and perspective, progress was made today.
Despite unusual work circumstances, I’ve closed 2.4% of my yearly quota in the last 3 days.
I shared good company, ate good meals and laughed a lot.
I saw family I’ve not seen in a while. It was wonderful to catch up.
I swam in the ocean. In the rain. Swimming in the rain has always been one of my favorite things to do. Few things match the feeling of weightlessness floating in the sea while the cool rain splashes down, like absolution from my sins.
In the immortal words of Ice Cube, “Today was a good day.”
