So, it’s been two weeks since the last post and he has still been struggling. Lifting weights one day a week, working several football scrimmages and games, and finishing up some of the last items that needed to be completed to sell their rental property. He has struggled to keep up with his day to day plans that will help him achieve his long-term goals. He continues to spread himself to thin and not just work certain items through to fruition and then gets stuck with many balls in the air which usually fall to the ground.
Over the weekend he went to the mall with his family. He does love to spoil his wife and children even though financial freedom stresses him out. He also loves to read books, this weekend he picked up a new book for him which is vitally important called One Year to an Organized Life. Organization is below what you would consider a strong suit, it’s more like something that doesn’t even cross his mind. You would think a man with a degree in Mathematics would have some organization skills, but he loves the order of math and struggles with order in most every other way.
He has also deleted most of the games from his phone because he knows that allows them to distract him from the things he most needs to accomplish. Slowly inching forward, he has just about finished the introduction of the book and has seen several items just in the introduction that shows him how far he has to go. This morning he did get up at his scheduled time of 4:15 a.m. He didn’t get a workout in, but he did get some reading done in his new book as well as did the dishes before he got ready for work. In the meantime, he also lolly-gagged around and wasted away more time than he would care to admit on social media. After a quick shower and getting ready for work, he left the house around 6:30 to make sure he had plenty of time to get to the office by about 7:15. He worked until 3:30, a day that was full of hours upon hours of meetings. He does a pretty good job of being decisive at work, which makes him question whether doing that all day negatively impacts his mental state away from the office.
After getting home from work around 4:15, he again kind of just laid around and wasted time until he had to get his son to karate. They left for the dojo around 5:15 and went for just one class tonight. It was a great time while they were there, he read his book for a while and wrestled with his daughter on the mats for a while too. On the way home, he stopped and got pizza since his wife was at work. They ate dinner together at the table, he put Mickey Mouse on for his daughter to watch after getting her ready for bed. They watched it together and then he went talked to a few of his officiating buddies to plan the weekend of football games. After putting his daughter to bed it was too late to work on finishing the frame for her bedroom so he called it a night and planned out what he was going to work on the next day.
