first things first
bon soir toute le monde. it was a day of transformation. i wish i could say this was my office above but alas, she’s not me. i’m channeling her tonight though for tomorrow’s final touches. it’s 10pm and has been a super long day. it’s day 2 of the project and i just couldn’t do anything at all until that office was attacked and conquered. just shows what a year of slacking off can do and then again, what one day of focused attention can do too. i worked non-stop. when i look at the finished results of hours put into cleaning the office it doesn’t seem that impressive. but i did embrace my OCD and organized the shelves down to every little item. it was a nice surprise was to find there was stock on handles we make and i didn’t even realize.
i’m sure we’ve all read posts on organizing, maximizing time and energy. there are a million ways busy people do it all. but i wanted to spend this first day thinking about the simplest things i’d read and see what stuck before putting anything else in my head. i’m an instant gratification kind of gal and was kind of eager to start my day. still i knew it was in my best interest so i did the 30 second program which is 30 seconds plank, 30 second headstand and 30 second meditation. after breakfast i put on my game face and went in for the kill on the office and wasn’t going to stop till it was time to say when and go to have a glass of wine and unwind with my girl, liz. now i’m home and i have a small window to get this up and not screw up on just day two. so in a 30 second synopsis, these are some of the things i learned and thought may be helpful to share:
*to make videos, i used my laptop using photobooth. here’s a video i watched to learn: youtube.com/watch?v=YMP642HmSck. in the video you’ll see the writing is backwards…does that mean everything is backward? hmmmm
your creation will end with .mov. when you’re ready to share the video, go to File/Export and put it on your desktop. it’s not a a great option but for me it’s the only one till i learn to use the phone or ipad for video. not sure how to send the files since they’re large. am i missing something? anyway thank you, google.
i want to thank you for coming back if you’re going to be checking in. you’re the reason i’m inspired to do this and in fact keep going which is even a struggle on day two for a sloth like me. i’m so happy to know you and hope that you share your experience too.
and last but not least, i’m passing on two of the links i listened to while i cleaned up…no judgement. not the kind of thing i’d normally check out but definitely worth a listen. i learned A LOT
