It has been a couple days! While I try and post every day I got a little sick this week so I did not muster up the discipline to make a post. I am really struggling to get up early. I’ve been listening to a lot of motivational videos but I’m trying to find that one dominant reason to say no that voice telling me to hit the snooze button. Lately that voice has been winning the battle but it won’t win the war.

Today at the gym I lost my cross ­čÖü I am hoping someone finds it and turns it in! Tomorrow I have a special Olympics event all day and I look forward to giving back!

Today was a cold one here in Wisconsin! I was productive with learning something new for work and got done what I needed so I could watch a little of the Clippers game.

I was listening to a podcast today and I picked up on something interesting. The podcast talked about how your network was similar┬áto your net worth. It hit home to me because right now I moved to a new city and I don’t know that many people. Right now the biggest people I am surrounded by are my business partners and my family members. I am happy with that but it is good to know I can surround myself with other┬áentrepreneurs through podcasts and books.

I’m happy with how things are going since I’m living on my own and I can only get better.

My Lord what a day! I really worked on my cooking skills today… I made the finest Mac N Cheese this world has ever seen!

I thought I did pretty well today with being disciplined. GRR the dryer and I got into a bit of a fight though… I was doing laundry and I did not put my clothes away. I know I should I have done this today. I tried writing an excuse but I don’t have none- its on me and I have to be better!

You know I did watch a little bit of the Dark Knight today and while I did count it against myself I did learn some things from it. I find that movie to be very psychologically stimulating.

I made Arnold proud today by going to the gym to work on my power and strength. Oooo speaking of gyms I did have a unique experience. As I made up my mind to make Mac N Cheese tonight, I knew I needed to get some milk. On a side note I did get the milk for free ­čÖé Anyway, there is a Planet Fitness right by my grocery store. Since I am new to the area I wanted to see what the gym looked like. As I entered the Planet Fitness, I asked for a tour. To my astonishment the worker did not want to give me a tour. It is a great example of how someone can be a great salesman or a poor one. He had low energy, didn’t ask what I was looking for and catered his conversation to around ipods… “You see that machine over there? That can charge your phone while you work out.” While I found it funny, it was a good learning experience for me.

As I’m writing this I’m sitting by my fire on a Saturday night… I’m getting tired so I’m going to go to bed! See you all tomorrow ­čÖé
