    TRIUMPHS & CONCERNS

    Still a bit of guilt for abandoning Happy Endings for the month of March. But I also feel more aligned with my end of year epic. This week I will start to see if my new endeavor shows more promise than Happy Endings.

    REQUEST FOR FEEDBACK:

    None.

    ON TRACK?

    Yep. And just slightly ahead. By the end of this week, I'll have launched and laid the groundwork for the first experiment.

      Re: “I need to get a handle on my schedule overflow, day job was very consuming this week”

      Maybe prioritize doing 1 small task that has an important huge impact per workday. Anything else is extra icing on the cake 🍰 only if you baked the cake 🎂 (completed the small task) as a test. Maybe this is not the time to do crazy amount of work but quality work to move the needle.
