PHOTO OF TODAY FOR INSTAGRAM
Dale joins me for one of my 50 press-ups in his wonderful garden.
30 MINUTE POWERNAP
This, I did not manage today. Damn. Does 30 minutes before midnight count? Now thinking I need to aim for a 100% success rate but if I don't get it, as close as I can is the aim.
RECALL A MEMORY FROM A PAST ADVENTURE
I'm in Memphis so sharing a picture from August 2011 when I paddled in with a huge group of Memphians. It was the first of many visits back here...
Hot today. Especially lovely to go outside though after a full morning in the basement without sunlight.
50 PRESS-UPS + 50 SIT-UPS
As before. Strangely, despite feeling yesterday's exercise in the muscles, today felt easier. Just gotta do it.
PAUSE AND LISTEN
More of Seth Godin's tribes whilst running and exercising. It just takes one person with an idea for people to feel the urge to join a larger journey than their own.
TAKE A PORTRAIT
Bradley Geismar - 9/24/16, firstname.lastname@example.org - My initial goal was to learn about the Mississippi River and its people. The problem with that mentality is that I did not see my position within that relationship. That has been the value of this journey; learning that my position is inextricably intertwined with this River - that we are all these people.
10 MINUTES OF WRITING
First notes towards a future book about starting a tribe and running a festival. Today's thoughts were mostly about overcoming the hurdles introduced when building a team and a much less simple part of my life than just being a one man band.
DEVELOPING MY WEBSITE
I started to bring together a nicer design for the projects page on my site, introducing a series of photos along with text to show off projects I'd taken on to satisfy a curiosity or overcome a fear.
CREATING A FILM
A little more on the film. Spent so much more than 10 minutes but just having this on the list ensured I did something and got closer to the finished product.
Done before bed.
SAVE £1 A DAY
Easy! Another pound in the pot!
LEARN A LANGUAGE
The basics. Hello - Konnichiwa! Goodbye - Sayounara! Yes - Hai! Let's Go - Ikou! No - Iie! Thank you - Arigatou! I'm sorry - Gomennasai!
