Climbing back in the saddle this past week after 5 days in San Francisco was really rewarding. Here are a few things I learned over the past week. 1. Stop trying to over-prepare and leave room for some impromptu living
2. Don't be underprepared either, a plan of action is better than no plan at all
3. Anything over 3 days is too long to be away from my family
4. Going back to the drawing board is never a bad thing, it helps you refine your original idea and make it better.
5. Face-to-face time is better than FaceTime
After getting in late Wednesday night, I enjoyed some quiet time with my wife. Trying to hold on to those last few moments of peace and quiet. The next two days were filled with non-stop excitement. From getting to do two new murals up at Union Bear, to speaking at the new Circle Meetup.
I'm finding my schedule is consistently busy now that I'm working for myself. It's not even the "business" side of things I feel that are keeping me busy, but the opportunities to go and do great things outside of my day-to-day routine. I'm not complaining, just learning how to better manage my time so I can do all the things I love to do.
I hope this last week was a good one for you. Let's focus on making this week ahead even better though. We can only live one day at a time. That's where I want to want, the here and now, not the "remember when" and the "what if". Stay creative.
