go through it, not around it. experience is left on the table when i avoid combat.
my mentor linked me with a family friend who needed an editor and colorist. she’s early in her career and talented. we decided to meet at 11am. i woke up to a call from my boss at 1100. normal nai would charm his was around the meeting. slide it to another day or exit the endeavor entirely— today i decided to go through it. i told her i woke up late, was willing to uber if she didn’t mind waiting, and that i was supra sorry for the fuck up. BEST DECISION. we connected. great vibes. and i believe we can really help one another.
after that i linked with a client. surveyed an upcoming site. networked with other creatives also involved. another win.
throughout the day my 9-5 was hitting. me. up. normally i’d avoid it and use charm to heal the damage later. nope. not today. i picked up. i went through it. another swish.
where shame and anxiety would hover there is pride and experience.
daily goggins has been transformed into objectives linked to purpose.
