Oh, another brilliant month filled with turbulence, but now tapping into my “hobbies” section at a rapid pace, unlike anything I’ve ever seen before! Let’s hit that one off first!
For those of you tuning in for the first time, this is an excellent exercise you can do on a routine basis: monthly, quarterly, or even yearly (which I don’t recommend). This exercise is to see if you have balance in your life and to see what areas you’ve been neglecting. So, let’s get into it!
Physical Environment: 10
I went with my instinct and terminated a job. This job was full of red flags, and I’m almost certain if I had taken that job, I would’ve been in melancholy for an entire year. They were so “perfect” in terms of doing everything by the book, but then after catching them in eyes and seeing how everything fell significantly, I bailed right before contract signing.
Now, I’m at a language center (although they’re forcing me to do things we didn’t agree upon) that’s giving me loads of work. There aren’t any foreign coordinators saying, “oh, I don’t think you can do this.” And it’s honestly a breath of fresh air because it’s literally the front office who’s running the show. Just perfect!
My condo, as always, has been great!
Fun & Hobbies: 10
First ever ten! Why? Three months = Malaysia, Singapore and Laos — first time in my life I’ve traveled in three back-to-back months (ok, I went to Sedona, Hawaii and moved to BKK back in 2013)…but Sedona is in America and Hawaii is also in America. This is an unprecedented three foreign countries!
These tens are not hyperbolic. They’re for real. Because of my ridiculous failure at the spartan Race last May, I decided to sign up with The Lab Bkk, a gym in the heart of Bangkok, and now I’ve been up, within three weeks, a significant amount of strength in my legs and upper body. My sleeping pattern is back on track and I’ve been eating….fairly decent. I’m 40 days away from the biggest competition of my life — and get this — a buddy who lives a couple of buildings over will also be flying out to Malaysia to compete, too! What are the odds!
Career: 10 +++++
Man, I’ve already stated it last month, but this month I’ve just kicked off a joint podcast with my main man Luke Burrows called Motivational Mentors, a show with two mentors answering questions from the crowd and showing their excellence, growth, fortitude and direction. I’ve also interviewed a soon-to-be millionaire and I’ve done two other podcasts: one with an extraordinary author with an awe-inspiring, captivating story, and another with a radio show host. I mean I can’t ask for more! I’ve also completed surveys for my website and podcast, changed the name of my Facebook page, post my podcasts on YouTube and so many other things. It’s pure bliss and it continues to climb, especially with the help of a massive content writer I met…through Luke Burrows!
Ok, it’s just because I had a terrible month last month in terms of saving. I was in the last transition phase and turned down two classes because I thought I was going to accept a job at a place that I later denied. Next month, though? Oh….pfft. It’s going DOWN!
Family & Friends: 6
Now, family is always 0. We know this. Lol.
Friends though? Well, the content writer gives me unbelievable feedback when I go through transgressions. Not only that, but I have a friend who gives me very useful feedback. I won’t include the other individual because that boat has sailed, but it’s there and it’s climbing.
Personal Development: 10
From the SkyTrain, to walking, the gym, while I’m at home, morning routine, evening routine. It’s pure fire and I’m reading and listening more than I ever had in the past.
