So, the "no sleep" thing is not a recipe for success. Day Eight's target:
Day considered started: 9:50AM (no sleep)
Slept around 8:20PM. Didn't track.
The day wasn't an entire waste, I had a bunch of errands, phonecalls, things like that. But none of the really high level stuff.
It's already the next day, but time to set some objectives:
1. The sales call first (already over right now, while I'm doing planning).
2. Weekly review
Then, wrote on blog / weekly update.
*Look at Gitomer Sales Course, do week 1
*GGW business plan
*PSB / new visa
*Do another planning session
Need to stop by the PSB, get materials together, and renew visa.
Late afternoon-ish meeting.
Today must's: client calls at 11:30PM and 3:30AM… going to be tired at 3:30AM, will sleep immediately after.
And results --
Awake: 5AM (8.5 hours)
5:20AM: Client asked to delay sales call. (20 general-life)
6:50AM: (90 sales)
8:20AM: (30 general-life, 30 relaxing, 30 distraction)
Starting to plan.
8:50AM: Starting good planning, got distracted. (15 planning, 15 distraction)
10:20AM: Good blogging, some maintenance, some planning. (30 planning, 30 blogging, 30 maintenance)
11AM: (20 distraction, 20 general-life)
Right now -- pack up computer, shower/shave, quick food, head to police station and PSB for new visa probably.
Registration, visa renewl, some client work mixed with sleep. Got to office at 8PM. Mixed with working and client calls, slept 3 hours, then 4 hours at various times, maybe two hours of client calls, and an hour or two of trying to improve quality while cutting time.
Verdict -- been doing a bunch of general runaround nonsense (registering, visa renewel, paying bills), had some client service time, and phonecalls/meetings. Day 10 goes similarly, which puts me a bit behind the 8-ball for this week. I'm going to rest up on Saturday a bit, and put a strong push in on Sunday/Monday/Tuesday... I guess weeks like this are necessary, there's a million moving pieces right now and I'm consolidating them, though it's a bit annoying to not be putting time into the top objectives.
Last day of the week --
The day's agenda:
*Blog immediately *Work on sales process some *Then all sales calls *Review week if in high energy / creativity *Maintenance if not
Awake: 1:30AM (9 hours sleep)
Last night marks the first time Alex has slept through the entire night! That was awesome, I know Liser especially enjoyed what was probably her best night of sleep in nearly a year.
8:30am - Alex really embraced the whole, 'get a good night of sleep' idea, but apparently he wasn't done resting, so after a morning bottle it was lights out again. The benefactor of his drowsiness was the pup. FRISBEE TIME!!!
9:30am - Alex is up and after reading a few stories I decide to get greedy and have a shower. Morning shower in the morning time! After yesterday that feels like a win.
12:07pm - A quick aside, I'm very lucky to have a cool job that has taken me to some interesting places, one such place was Luke Air-force Base where I got to walk the flight line. Dozen's of F-16's in various states of operation, it's hot and it's loud. But being that close to an F-16 (and it's P&W F-100 engine) is way cool. To take a further detour the F-100 engine sound played backwards is the sound emitted by the hypnotoad. That's totally 100% true, you can look it up on the internet.
