What I did today
Today was a pretty productive day at the day-job. My day job is something I haven’t talked about much but I’m a leader at a VC backed startup. Today was a good day there because we made a lot of progress on a new initiative that will help take us into the right direction. It’s exciting!
In my personal, side work, it was also a productive day. I finished up on a bunch of work and have a bunch more to do. But, I’m feeling good about progress and am excited to continue moving in the right direction.
I wrote a piece for Medium today about how negativity can be a good thing.It’s a unique take, but I hope the perspective is helpful for someone.
The final piece is I spent some time thinking about starting a business. I have a lot of stuff going on, but it’s all “trading my time for money.” At some point, probably within the next few months, I need to start a business and get that going in the right direction.
The underlying problem is how tired I am. A loved one actually sat me down last night and said I’m working too hard. What’s worse is she’s right. I’m exhausted, and I need more sleep or something not good will happen to my health.

My plan for tomorrow
Tomorrow will involve building a power point presentation for my Catalant client, as well as doing some more writing for Medium. I love writing about different thoughts, even though no one reads it! I find writing to be therapeutic, almost a journal, so I’m excited to write more tomorrow.
Until then, I really need some sleep. It’s barely 8pm and I’m struggling to stay awake.
