GKN Weekly Update 5/2/11
And a Happy May Day to you!
This past week has been truly nutty for me. Many voiceovers for new & old clients and more work on the Project: T.E.R.R.A. comic book. On top of that, my friend’s store All In One Collectibles moved from Denville to Randolph and we did some serious hauling of stuff! But that’s not what I wanna talk about today…
This is my Mission Statement for 2011: to build upon last year’s financial success with personal victories of the body, mind, and heart.
Like I’ve said in previous posts, I did well on the monetary end but I let a lot of other things fall to the wayside. Well, I’m one third of the way into the new year and so far so good.
Body, pretty good both inside and out. The cholesterol has stayed below 200 and I’ve only gotten sick once this year. I’m struggling with the weight, though. My friends laugh at me and say I look fine but I have a number in mind and I’m sticking to it. Anyone remember that Kevin Spacey line from “American Beauty”? Post it if you know what I’m referring to!
Mind, awesome! I’ve really kept up on the auditions & cold-calling and there have been immediate results, certainly enough to keep doing what I’m doing. I’m also ahead of my sales goals and under budget.
Heart, well that’s none of your beeswax…! Let’s just say that I’m a happy dude.
TIP OF THE WEEK: Maintaining the body, mind, and heart all at the same time is not easy. That’s what life is all about, I guess. It’s like the cliche of spinning plates. You focus on one and the other two go splat. So how do you give them equal focus? Honestly, I have no flippin’ idea. If I did, I’d be a rich Adonis with a wonderful wife right now. All I can say is to stay focused, stay positive, and keep setting goals.
QUOTE OF THE WEEK: I’ve never wished a man dead, but I have read some obituaries with great pleasure. Mark Twain
STUFF!: Quite a week we’ve had, ay? I don’t remember this many big events happening in such a short period of time. Weddings, tornadoes, manhunts…it’s a lot to digest. There have been some, shall we say, spirited debates concerning yesterday’s events. I won’t get into them and I thank you for not doing the same on this here blog. I just hope the world is a little bit safer and a little bit brighter now…
Have a great week!
