Week of March 25 Recap: Building Integrity & Self-awareness

Think the two big lessons for me so far on this coaching journey are:
– Integrity: We’ve spoken about this, and I absolutely need to live up to my word. I plan on having a notepad next to me to track every commitment, ensuring I follow through. I need to improve with clients in particular – I’m not proud of my performance there.
– Realistic commitments: I think my struggles with integrity stem from good intentions but unrealistic goals. Instead of taking the time to plan for success (especially with clients), I commit and think “I’ll make it happen”. I need to be much more mindful.

February 7, 2024 Daily Reflection – Finding My Groove

I haven’t done these in a bit. I had an amazing week last week productivity-wise, and this week is also starting off really well. I’ve just been focused on important client deadlines and have lost touch with the bigger picture, partly from not doing these exercises, so I wanted to get back into it. However, I’m thinking of maybe only doing it three times a week, at the beginning, in the middle, and at the end. Doing this daily might not be the best use of my time.

January 3, 2024 Daily Reflection – Getting Back On Track

Today was pretty good. I managed to work for three hours – not as much as I’d like, but still productive. The afternoon included a dentist appointment, and the day wrapped up nicely with dinner with a friend. I feel like I’m getting back on track, especially since today was a significant improvement over yesterday. I’m optimistic about moving in the right direction.

December 18, 2023 Daily Reflection – Another Average Day

Today was average. I didn’t get back home until lunchtime and was really tired, so I took a nap. It was hard for me to get started with work, but I ended up pushing myself and got 4 hours done, even though my target was 5. It wasn’t the best day, but it wasn’t a disaster either, and I’m on a roll of 4-hour days, which is good for me. I just need to build off the momentum and push a bit harder, but I’m in a good place mentally and really hopeful for 2024. I’m sure I can catch up on work over the next few days.

Week of December 11, 2023 – Weekly Reflection – Bare MInimum

This week, I’m feeling pretty good about how things went, even though I’m aware that I just managed to do the basics of what a productive week should look like. My days were filled with a solid four hours of work on client projects, but I can’t shake off the feeling that my life’s a bit off-kilter. I’m missing out on creating passive income and, let’s not forget, exercise was nowhere in my routine.

December 14, 2023 Daily Reflection – Long, Full Day

It was quite a day. Taking care of Duke in the morning can be a handful – he needs a few walks and his breakfast. I absolutely adore him, but it’s something that really shapes my morning routine. On top of that, I dedicate about 45 minutes to my Morning Pages, which pushes back my work start time to around 11 am. I’m thinking it might be wise to start my days a bit earlier.

December 13, 2023 Daily Reflection – Hustling

I was disappointed to miss yesterday’s post after a late work night and a rushed morning today due to a client meeting. Overall, things are good. It’s a financially strong month, but I’m swamped with client meetings and coordination tasks, which barely leaves room for actual work.

Excitingly, I’ve landed two new small contracts. They took a lot of time and effort, but it’s great progress.

I planned to balance client work and passive income projects, but the influx of client projects is taking precedence. It’s a juggling act with so many clients.
