You Can Do It Tomorrow.
Probably something you wouldn’t expect me to say or talk about right? Last week I pushed myself so hard that it actually hurt me physically and mentally. I was waking up at 4:30am and pushing through until almost 11pm. TERRIBLE repercussions because I didn’t listen to my body and mind.
I realized that I would be mentally exhausted by 8pm ish yet I tried to push longer. Then by not finishing everything I wanted to, I would beat myself up mentally. I kept having the feeling of, “I HAVE TO DO THIS NOW”. Do I really though? It wasn’t until today (Thursday) that I told myself, “WORK WILL BE HERE TOMORROW, IT CAN WAIT”. I really let that sink in. There are certain things that, should wait, so they can be properly done, and done with better focus.
The other AH HA! I had was this.. I am ruining RIGHT NOW by stressing over things that aren’t that big of a deal. This year has BY FAR, been the best year of my life. I’ve lived in two amazing cities, Seattle and now Los Angeles. I’ve met amazing people, accomplished goals, and am legitimately doing what I love with a company I love. By stressing over little things, it has distracted me from the wins and awesomeness.
I’ve also noticed my mood has been down. I honestly think it’s due to me pushing harder than I was ready, and not having better daily discipline.
So, the OmieTip of the week, PUSH HARD, but only until it makes sense.
