Had a decent night’s sleep given he fact I had some beers before bed. I always wake up feeling guilty for doing it. Must be related to that idea of resistance. At least today will be short and hopefully I can get home and relax with the kids for a bit. I will need to work and must remember to make a diligent list of things to do!
One thing I learned: If you can do something in under 5 minutes, make it happen. The brain power required to keep it top of mind is too great and a waste of good resources. Make lists and keep them close as possible. Try to break the lists down in to smaller short term tasks. Take items of the lists if more than a week passes with no action. It’s obviously not that important.
One piece of motivation: Put yourself in hard situations. Jocko believes that this is the key to growth and development. Humans have this inane idea that orderly is better. Chaos is in fact a natural way of the world. Embrace the chaos and free your mind!
Three ideas: Definitely focusing on this game based learning pitch for quest. I think it will be an easier sell and I have the materials. It will be harder to connect deeper learning, but I could probably use my original pitch of action and motivation to self-learning. How games can help.
Workout: Going to try and run 10k today in the afternoon. I don’t feel particularly sore, but I’m sure will struggle after eating and hitting that mid-afternoon low.
