I admit I’ve wasted massive time this week in a failed experiment. The experiment was simply, go out and get out more. Although the concept was cool, it was destructive and counter-productive.
I am not disciplined enough at this point in my life to completely isolate the two worlds of Work and Play. I function at a very high level when I’m doing productive activities. However, I play extremely hard. I do everything at 150% (work and play).
Those of you that have hung out with me, know I like to go really hard. I just choose not to promote that behavior, because I know its destructive when over promoted and uncontrolled.
The challenge is finding a ‘happy medium’ where I can have fun and still be extremely productive, because my behavior is momentum driven. When my Productive momentum is broken, it takes days to get back in the zone. For this reason, I will stick with the occasional vacation and only hang out 1-2 times a month. Multiple times in a week is definitely a massive fail. I know my strengths and weaknesses, therefore it is to my advantage to focus on my strengths and manage my weaknesses.
With this being said.. It’s a new day.. The score is back to Zero-Zero. Time to re-establish my productive momentum.
