2024 Q2

  • Stealth 360 Last quarter I hit 350 attempts which I’m super proud of and feel my core getting stronger which feels accretive to my overall fitness and health goals. 360 is 4 a day which is doable but really hoping to hit 400. Going to try to frontload it to the start of the quarter to get ahead of travel and work
    • Yes! This is only 4 per day but feels like a ton of work and my core is stronger than ever. Will continue this into the new quarter, maybe 375 because 400 feels challenging with travel and work and wedding.
  • NetworkingI’ve fallen off networking a bit both reengaging my network and building new relationships. I’ve got Linkedin premium and a bunch of other tools I want to spend some time with. Don’t really have a purpose but know to get to the “next level” in life its gonna come from my network.
    • Definitely have done better at this via reactivating old contacts and rekindling relationships. looking for a way to systematize this via a tool. I signed up for Clay the personal CRM but hasn’t made an impact. Going to check out some of these linkedin tools to help in a non spammy way.
  • Stretching – been loving my Yoga Body courses as well as another stretching app I have. Wanna keep my streak up of 3 sessions a week. Want to give myself grace that its ok to do half a session which is better than nothing
    • Doing great with this. Finished one of the Yoga body courses and kept up to atleast 2-3 stretching sessions per week. Also using my standing desk more.
  • Gympass –  Hit 43 classes last quarter which is SUPER impressive. Want to hit at least 30 in Q2. Working on getting back to being a morning workout person.
    • For some reason Gympass now Wellhub has removed the ability to see your check in history so i had to look through confirmation emails. Looks like I hit atleast 42. Hooray for me!
  • Phone distance – Been enjoying using the Jomo app and think it has helped me develop a healthier relationship with my phone. Last quarter I fell off leaving my phone in the key dish in my apartment, part of that is needing it for 2FA and other work things, but part of it is that I use my phone for stealth, so I just bought an unlocked android phone to be my primary stealth device.
    • Good not great. What happens is I start my workday with my phone cause I need it for 2FA and this is a good checkpoint to remind myself to login and then move the phone away from me.
  • Mortgage pre-approval and vibe checks – Starting to think about our next move and want to explore what we can buy in our area and beyond. With a wedding approaching its somewhat unlikely that buying will make sense this go round but want to atleast explore. Also will have a car for about a month so want to explore new areas that we haven’t seen yet.
    • Did the vibe check in a few new neighborhoods. Didn’t go through with the mortgage pre-approval because its hard to make the math work for buying for us right now. I have dreams of being a home owner but my fiancee is already great with reminding me that the math has to make sense. Most likely will do another lap in our current apartment which is one less thing to stress over.
  • Morning personal development – too often I wake up 15 minutes before a meeting and rush into work. I don’t find myself with energy after work to do things so the morning is the only feasible time. I don’t want to set numbers or targets just want to get better about doing my stuff before work be it stretching, gym, networking, courses etc.
    • Meh. Work has been all encompassing recently so trying to give myself grace with not being always on and hustling at all times. I really feel great when I do something for myself before work starts so need to work towards getting back to that in the new quater.
  • Courses – I bought the Internet Pipes course last quarter which I just started and would like to complete atleast one module of. Additionally, I have membership in Small Bets which has perfect bit size courses on various entrepreneur topics. Also bought my fiancee a Masterclass subscription for the both of us and want to use Masterclass in place of my podcast time. Let’s say one of each for the quarter would be a win.
    • Did one module of Internet Pipes and one Small bets. Enjoying the bite sized nature of the courses.
  • EY and personal blog post – Will take a few months to get my EY blog post up on EY.com which will come along with a profile page  for myself on EY.com which i’m super excited about. In the opposite end of the spectrum there is no process or barriers to me posting my own blog post on my website and social channels.
    • Wrote the EY blog post and now it is fighting its way through the approval process to make its way onto the website. Did not publish my own, struggling to make this a priority despite seeing so many internet friends benefit from putting themselves out their.
  • Outreach – Did a little bit of this last quarter, and don’t want too much process around tracking it, but I’d like to reach out to atleast 15 new contacts via cold email, or re-engage people I’m more at arms length with via old email threads.
    • Did a little bit of this, didn’t track. My domain is on a spam list now unfortunately so I think I’m going to have to setup a sending domain which feels like a pain.
  • Explore real estate and land – I’ve got two opportunities on my desk around investing and land and flipping a house. Not sure if i have the bandwidth to go after either of them right now vs. other priorities
    • Still exploring. TBD.
