This Week’s Goal: Making My Time Matter

In light if my high school chum’s passing, I decided to focus this week’s energy on making my time matter.  Making the best of my time, making the most of time.

I’m not going to get crazy with this goal and go sky diving without any training or going bungee jumping off some bridge. And for some of you out there, these or normal outdoor activities. Sorry, not for this city gal. What I’m simply saying is that I am going to make myself more accountable for how I spend my time. And push harder for the things I want and who I aspire to be. I was already on this track, his passing was just a remidner.

Happy Friday: Happy Where I’m At

It’s finally starting to feel more like spring and less like summer after that crazy winter we had in February. Finally. And as the weather takes shape hopefully rounding off to a normal season, I want to wish my hustlers a Happy Friday. And may you be happy where you’re at.

Wait. I don’t mean to imply that you need to stop hustling and “love the one you’re with”, but rather love where you’ve taken yourself thus far.

I am great at beating myself up and not acknowledging how far I’m come with what I want to do for myself and my life. I always believed that if I didn’t accomplish what I had set out to do, I hadn’t succeeded in life yet.

Ouch. That’s a pretty harsh self reflection of you think about it. Nothing happens overnight and anything worth having will require hard work. So to tell myself that I’m not a success because A, B and C haven’t been conquered is to negate all the work I’ve already put in.

We side hustlers put in A LOT of work and time that most people never see. And it matters. The time we take to invest, to market, the pitch, to follow-up, to meet up and to grind all matters. Our hustle matters. It’s part of our successful journey and our small wins.

So we may not be living in the high rise lofts or mansions homes yet as a result of all our hard work, but we’re getting there. Today, we’re going to be happy where we are because of what we’ve done… so far.
