LEARNING SOMETHING NEW

I’ve been wanting to move more into digital marketing both in a career and as an entrepreneur.  It’s something that I’ve toyed with for years and quite frankly have been too scared to take the leap.

According to this Ted Talk, it takes 20 hours to learn something new.  You won’t be an “expert” but you will be well on your way to becoming one.

So I’ve decided to take the leap.  And just how am I gonna do it you might ask?  I’m going to learn by doing and by doing I mean I’m going to start some side projects.

 

INCREASING PRODUCTIVITY

I absolutely adore Marie!  She gives some seriously good advice.  Like I mentioned above I’m working on some side projects but it ain’t easy.  I get distracted very easily.

This video gives you 3 Steps to Stop Wasting Time and Increase Your Productivity.  My favorite thing that she mentions is the Onesie method.  It’s where you write down one actionable goal you want to complete right at that moment and place it in front of you with no other distractions in front of you.  You work on that and only that until it’s done.

I tried it and it does work!

 

GETTING RID OF LIMITING BELIEFS BY DRAWING!

I deal with self-limiting beliefs.  I think most everyone does.

They hold you back. That’s why it’s good to work on removing them from your thoughts daily until one day you don’t feel them at all.

This video shows how most people don’t think that they can draw – a self-limiting belief.  But he takes us through exercises where we draw characters in mere seconds.  And just like that, we can draw.

This got me to wondering, how many limiting beliefs are we holding on to and what could we accomplish if we just let those beliefs go?

GOING TO SEE THIS AND MAY READ THE BOOKS

I’m a huge movie buff and love when a good movie comes out.

The Dark Tower movie looks amazing.   By reading the comments everyone keeps saying that the books are way better which is normally the case so I may read them before I go see the movie.

KITTENS, KITTENS…EVERYWHERE KITTENS!!

Lately, I’ve been obsessed with kittens…like really really obsessed.  No, I don’t want a little kitten or any pet just yet but this adorable video of a cat daddy taking his job so seriously is just TOO CUTE!

STARTING WEEKLY POSTS FOR WEIGHT LOSS

A while back I wrote about how I want to lose weight and just how I was going to do it.  Well, I ain’t done it yet.  It’s the beginning of the month and I’ve decided to give it a real chance.

I truly believe that intermittent fasting can work.

Accountability is what I need. So I’m going to make a commitment to post my progress here weekly.

THYROID CANCER SCARE

I went to the doctor after arguing with them about my thyroid for months and I finally was able to go and see an Endocrinologist.  They found a lump in my throat and wanted me to go get all these tests done to see if it was cancer.

Talk about scary!!

I am so thankful that the test came back negative.  I feel grateful to be alive and quite honestly, humbled by the experience.  I don’t ever want to forget how I felt in those moments because it reminds me to keep living fully and unapologetically.
