I’ve been up since 2:48 AM. Lying in bed my minds been playing a continuous stream of GIF ideas that have me in them.
It won’t let me be so I’ve schedule in a GIF photoshoot with myself for tomorrow.
So I’m on automatic.
I’ve walked the dogs.
I’ve fed the dogs.
I’ve fed Seymour the Second.
I’ve gone for a run in the rain (and why the fuck is in raining in Greece in June? what happened to summer?)
I’ve lifted some weights.
I’ve fed myself.
But that’s it for automatic. The rest of my day is not and that’s going to be a struggle considering it’s 8am and I’ve been up for just over 5 hours already.
Why am I telling you this?
I’m tired. Tired means no functioning filter. I can not be held responsible for what I write today.
But I will still try to reflect on my week.
Problem is I don’t remember much of the week.
I’ve done a bunch:
Finished phase 1 of a data governance project. All the research and most of the technical stuff is done.
Finally figured out that damn issue in GA4 for my client. It took way to long and I’m glad to see it over with but I’ll miss playing GA4 detective.
Added more speaking engagements to my calendar for the year.
A note on LinkedIn - I’ve been loving it. Once I committed to just being me and not pretending to be whatever I think the algo or someone wants me to be it’s been soooooo much fun.
It takes less effort to just be me.
And I have opinions so it’s easy to just put them out there.
Not only has it started conversations but I’ve learned a lot. I call this a huge WIN.
Another win was very much a me win. A win that will make my life easier. Something I’ve been putting off for way to long.
I finally set up my Tana in the way I need it to be.
And it feels so good. I’m actually happy looking at all I need to do now. I don’t have to constantly think about what I’m forgetting. It’s all there.
Don’t ask me why it took so long. I feel like anything that does not have direct value and is just for me takes at least 5 times as long to get done.
Yeah, I know. The whole take care of you first etc. Logically it all makes sense but in practice that’s a whole other story.
When I took my altMBA they shipped us a stack of books. I did not read all of them. This week I have been rereading one started reading another.
Thanks for the Feedback - a must read for everyone. It will make us better people.
The Art of Possibility - not sure about this one yet. Having a hard time “getting it” within the first chapters but let’s see.
Best short read of the week:
Simo’s GA4 rant was def the best read of the week. Priceless.
And this piece on the Ultramarathon Mindset and how to get things done.
Best privacy read of the week:
