We all know that #mondaymorning feeling! Spotted this shop full of sleeping sales assistants at the Terracotta Army complex. There were at least 8 or 9 of them in the shop, all sleeping!! I found that everywhere in South East Asia people sleep whenever they get a chance - be it public transport, coffee shop or like here, a shop where you're working?! I wonder how they sell any souvenirs...
Happy new week everyone!
How to fall off the wagon guilt-free AND come out ahead?! It’s ok to fall off the wagon sometimes. What’s important is… yep, getting back on.
I recently fell off my business strategy side hustle wagon. Fortieth birthday celebrations, a demanding consulting schedule (ahem, full time gig), holiday celebrations. Life got real busy.
Maybe this has happened to you, too. Before you get all self-critical and judgy with yourself, there IS a silver lining. Falling off the wagon is a great learning experience.
Here what I learned over the past month:
1. It’s dang near impossible to do 100% of everything 100% of the time.
2. Career priorities ebb and flow. Sometimes your full time gig is #1 , sometimes it’s your side hustle, sometimes it’s whatever life throws at you.
3. When you choose a new priority, be intentional about why you’re choosing it. Then let go of any guilt you have for making the choice you did.
4. Trust that you’ll eventually get back “on” the other wagon, when you decide the time is right.
So there you go. How to fall off a wagon guilt-free AND learn something as a result.
I totally forgot I had this beauty! She’s a heavy and loud thing though. It’s electric with a stinky motor. lol But it’s cute right? Anyhoo, I stumbled upon it in a thrift store in San Jose. I believe it was $15. I used it to create Christmas gift tags. When I first got it Ethan was so mesmerized by it. He was like, “What is this thing and what does it do?” 😂 I love vintage style don’t you? 💕
