2023 Q4 + Recap

 

  • App Limits and Life Savers – I have started the habit of checking my screentime every sunday and most of the time the number disgusts me. This makes me play defense instead of offense which needs to change
    • Better but not great. Will install one of the better blocking apps that are well reviewed
  • Default to keeping my phone away from me in the apartment – Will keep with my keys away from me most of the time 
    • Totally forgot about this. I get tripped up when I have to use my phone for 2FA or other similar processes
  • Stealth 350 – I feel my core getting stronger. 350 would be about 120 per month and 4 per day which is a very reasonable target. THe new rule of thumb is i do one after every business meeting
    • Will hit 300. Close but no cigar so 350 for Q1
  • Log most food into macro factor – Down 2lbs to start the quarter and want to keep the momentum going and get ready for my wedding body 
    • Very good. Feel off for a week around Thanksgiving but mostly great here
  • Something for myself before work – I need to carve out more time for myself in the AM. Lately I am getting up shortly before my first meeting and that’s never a winning day 
    • Better but room for improvement. Need to get back into AM workout with time for me 
  • Publish things i learned in EMS post – Draft is half done. 
    • Nope. 
  • Draft EY thought leadership post – One of my new business goals is to get a profile on EY.com. I will draft a blog post with a few of my colleagues 
    • Have two drafts. Hope to get one up on the site by mid 2024
  • Finish hip opening course + one more course from other app – I felt better when I stretch consistently and learned that we lose 3-4% of strength every year after 40 and I need to get ahead of that 
    • Did 15 stretching sessions which is about one every week. Good start 
  • Vibe Checks – my fiancee and I are starting to explore new cities. We love our area but worry we will be priced out in a year or so and are considering different paces of life
    • Looked at the suburbs and had a few phenomenal planning sessions
  •  Finalize Wedding Invite List – what a stressful game of nonsense. We are probably 80% of the way to making the list. 
    • Completed. What a stressful game of nonsense
