MITM Daily Creation Call #29

Hello world!

Jessica is really living life. I am now in my third trimester and I just can’t wait to see my baby!! But in the mean time I got some stuff to do. I spent the weekend in beautiful Chesapeke Bay and it really reinforced my want to be location independent with my career. I do feel that I am moving in that direction. I also feel like its never going to happen and I am going to be stuck back in desk jockey position. Alas, I think those thoughts are very normal. Lots to do today, including putting this all in my calendar and actually following the timeline of the day I created… just for fun. I haven’t scheduled myself in a whole day, for awhile. So lets see how it goes! Yay!

Today’s items are:

1. Discuss property with agent
2. Complete 2 calls with R & G
3. Work on supplemental income
4. Identify a network and schedule to go
5. 500 plan update

Hi!  There was NO reality in my schedule.  I was just doing or not doing things willy-nilly.  I can’t beleive I just said that! What is going to allow me to be successful is ACTION and so I am promising one meaningful work thing a day.  That is probably appropriate because it turns out everything takes WAY longer than I think it is going to, but that is to be expected since I am doing pretty much everything for the first time.  So promises for the day are now going to be 1 major thing and maybe some minutea;)

1. Write my about page
2. Call Gayle, Dad and Michael
3. Decide if I am going to CO

Hello world!

Katie learned that she is sometimes TOTALLY out of touch with reality.  I mean I have no idea how long it is going to take to do what I have to do.  None!  I think something is going to take an hour it takes 3 to do half of it.  I don’t even really know when things are done.  I have talked about this before but they say fail to plan, plan to fail.  What no one says is  plan on your plan failing which is what I have seen happen most – lol.  DISCLAIMER:  I do not have a super significant relationship to failure, so I am in no way dis-empowered by that last statement.  If my statement “plan on your plan failing” upsets or triggers something in you.  You may want to look at your relationship with failure as it is likely you are making it mean something about who you are as a person that plans don’t work out as planned.

Today’s items are:

1. Buy podcasting hardware
2. Spend 1 hour developing my timeline
3. Post poll on FB about names

Jessica has learned that pregnant ladies have hormones. 🙂 The last few days have been a real release of emotions for me. With my job ending the way that it did, I didn’t get the opportunity to say goodbye to people. I also am nervous about what I am creating next around my future business. I am also six months pregnant, this weekend actually marks the end of my second trimester and I am definitely feeling the crazy, or I guess I should really say my friends are. Thank god for good friends who will endure your strange, neurotic pregnancy woes. Yesterday and Monday I did get everything done on my list. I listened to 14 hours of podcasts! Whew! And had a great call with the woman in sober living and got some more contacts in San Diego.

Today’s items are:

1. Complete with G
2. Prepare for departure and schedule ride from airport
3. Present for father in law

Hello world!

This past weekend I did everything that I said I would.  WOO HOOOO for all promises kept.  Man does that chatter in my mind threaten me honoring what I said I would do.  It really doesn’t take that long to get stuff done once I get in action around it.  Procrastination is the HUGEST time suck.  Lesson – when you notice you are procrastinating – JUST STOP IT!

Today’s items are:

1. Mission/Vision and create my ideal listener for my new podcast complete
2. 1.5 hrs on PPP

Jessica had a pretty awesome weekend. I went to a Sober Living Training class about how to prepare a home for people to live in as they create their new lifestyle drug free. I met the kind of people that are running these homes and ultimately found out much more about them. I have not thus far found out the real secrets to success in this business but I did find out a lot of the pitfalls to avoid. And I am very excited to get started on it.

The other thing I am learning is the value of being an entrepreneur. I finally see that it really isn’t that risky and it completely worth it. The company that I am currently working has turned into a very scary and intimidating work environment, more scary than starting my own business to at a minimum cover my own bills. And I think that people deal with that all the time. An environment where their boss doesn’t like them, or that is illegally requiring that you work overtime on salary, even though you are not managing people. Or a company that is going through hard financial times and is potentially looking at layoffs. All of those can be much more scary than venturing out on your own. When you work for a company there are often so many mouths fed before yours that you end up doing all the meaningful work so the investors and board members can get paid later, and then the management team can get paid now. While you are there thinking, why am I doing this? Or at least I am. And I first realized this in 2007, the fact that it has taken me so long to fully commit is embarrassing. But there is no looking back now only forward… and I am jumping in.

Today’s items are:

1. Go to the seminar
2. Prepare my baby shower list
3. Talk to DR
