It is days like today that make the daily-ness of this feel a little repetitive and risk the chance of this whole experiment becoming dull to the public who are choosing to come along on this ride. There is only so much progress a person can achieve in a 24 hour window and when 12 of those hours are committed to other jobs and eventually you want to sleep (at least a little bit) that leaves a very limited window to complete your tasks. This is the cold, unfeeling reality of time. It goes forward whether you are finishing things or not.
In a job interview, if I were to be completely honest, when asked what I felt my worst attribute is I would normally say time management. However, I no longer think that is true. If I actually look at how I spend my time, what goals are accomplished and how all of these things track together I actually think my biggest flaw is enthusiasm management. When I get started on something, like Operation 2.0, I’m usually pretty excited about it, I like the challenge it brings, and I’m looking forward to the results. I want to do it and so I find the ways that will make it work. I can work in batches, manage my time, make the time when it can’t be managed. I make it work. It’s when I lose steam that things start to go awry. If I lose the excitement I also stop being as dedicated to the process of making things happen (which is totally the case with my relationship to the gym right now #CurtisIsBloated).
So, with that in mind, I actually failed to achieve the progress I had set for myself yesterday. This now needs to be completed today:
- Finish preparing my sides for the audition.
- Review the VO scripts for Friday (oh lord, that’s tomorrow!)
- Read my stinking book!
Staying rested is key. A tired brain is a sloppy brain.
Here’s the playlist for April:
