Diving in head first into the program. Truth be told I am finding it hard to balance work, life, etc. That said, I am plugging away. I am on my next iteration of my DMP. I jumped the gun and sent in my second version before the Week 2 Sunday session. Even in draft form I have begun reading it out loud. That’s new for me. Seems foreign but I am getting it. I actually tried to read it aloud in the hot tub the other night–and it was night. Had a flashlight with me. 🙂
Writing it was truly illuminating as I had to think about my life, future, goals, what I really want, who I really am, etc. My guides age me some really good feedback which I have incorporated into my next update. I can see that the process is just as important as the final product. I am learning more and more about myself with each step in the process.
Here is a picture of my MKMMA stuff. I had a 20 year old copy of the Greatest Salesman already before the class started so I just had to get another. You can see the difference. Got lots of 3×5 cards. My problem is that I write big and I can’t get everything on one line. 🙂
As a person with a hyper active system, trying to sit still for any period of time can be a challenge. Now learning to close out all thought is mind boggling for someone like me. But try we must. You see I have ideas firing through y head every second of the day. How can this be better, how to be more efficient. How to solve xyz problem, etc. The list goes on and on so sitting still with no thoughts–mind blowing if I can do it.
I made note this week that I quickly went out and completed my promise that I put only card this week. It was actually amazing how I felt that I had competed this very simple and mundane task that I had been putting off for weeks. It was simple, go out and get salt for the water softener. I would even walk past the bags of salt in the store and not pick one up. Putting it down on the 3×5 card in the manner in which we did and seeing it before me with my personal commitment in writing to get it done really weighed on my mind to the point that I just had to get it done right away. And I did.
Off to continue with this week’s assignments. Please excuse any typos in my blog. I am the king of typos. 🙂
Resubmitted my DMP v2 with my PPN. The feedback from my first submission was very helpful and directional. That said, they really make you think. Words are easy but getting the right words to convey the appropriate meaning is hard. Can’t wait to see what the final version looks like in 24 more weeks. A trip of a thousand miles starts with the first step.
The journey continues…
