Life's Hamster Wheel

Life's Hamster Wheel

Posted up in my office are the following words: Hopeful, Fun, Relentless, Committed, Successful, and Confident

Every time I look up from my computer, I see these six words staring me in the face. On days when I don’t feel confident, these words speak life to me. On days that don't seem successful, these words breathe life into me. 

What words, phrases, or quotes breath life into you? 

Oftentimes, we are grinding and hustling so hard that we can feel trapped in life's perpetual "hamster wheel." That wheel where we can’t stop, won’t "stop 'til you get enough," or do enough. That wheel makes us run so fast because we want to prove all the haters wrong. 

That's A Major Key

That's A Major Key

Some people like to call me "old-skool" because of my preference for paper over technology. I have several notebooks I like to write in. I love jotting down my ideas as they come. Now you might be wondering, "Why don’t you use your phone for that?" For me there’s something about the physical aspect of writing down my thoughts, being able to go back to re-read them five years from now. Sometimes you can’t do that on your old phone. I also have an obsession with Post-it notes. I like to write down my to-do’s for the day. I feel a sense of accomplishment when I can check items off my list. It feels good to know I accomplished certain important things at the end of my day. I believe this feeling is one that most of us crave.
