Yesterday morning I did well in my spinning class and since I sweat my ass off, I wanted to treat myself to a caramel macchiato from Starbucks. My favorite drink of theirs and one I usually only get if I have a free one on my card. In December I swore off buying coffee out and made it at home every day. Something I’ve wanted to do for a while because I don’t like wasting money on it nor waiting in line for it, but mostly it was the money. :) However, I had gotten into a routine of buying it out and I am happy to say I nipped that in the bud after 30 days (now almost 60 days) and now it feels weird to set foot in a Starbucks, Joe’s or any other coffee establishment.
For the past two years, my favorite fitness instructor, Coco, would tell me to use the foam roller to hammer (my word, not hers) out any pain I was experiencing. I’m usually good about stretching for a while after one of her epic rides, but most of the time, I’d pass the foam roller. It would either hurt too much or I wouldn’t have enough time.
As a freelancer, my days are typically focused on what my clients need. They are always my priority and I let my work (mostly administrative in nature) fall by the wayside.
I have spoken to several successful people who take time out each week to focus on what they’re doing with their business. They dedicate several hours to things like invoicing, planning, expenses, promoting, strategizing, setting up systems and the like.
Things I consider adulting. As a creative, I’d rather play. Who wouldn’t?
