My experiences this week have been both positive and negative, though the positive impact far exceeds the negatives. On the plus side—I have developed a routine and seem to be integrating the daily routines into my daily pattern. I no longer have to review carefully to make sure I know exactly what I am supposed to read each morning. However I always check to make certain I have not forgotten or overlooked something. I also seem to be accomplishing more and in many cases in less time than previously. I really enjoy and look forward to my quiet (sit) time. Both Hanel and Mandino seem to be becoming more a part of me. I stop at times and send myself (‘subby’) a message. For example, when I begin to think and say negative things. I recall that thoughts are the cause and quickly substitute a positive thought and positive words.
My challenges (the negatives) have been completing some of the auxiliary tasks—tweeting, following other MKMMAs, and reading blogs. I checked all the blogs assigned to me. Each of my blog team mates have their blogs up and are doing great. I left comments on four of the five blogs and I will visit all 5 blogs tomorrow (Friday) and leave a comment. My blog partners are:
- Luc Griffet Master Key Blog
- Terry Dickman Master Key Master Mind Alliance Blog
- Tom Dutta Master Key Blog
- Tommy Hitt/Dale Master Key Blogs
- Tony Profit Master Key Blog
I have started following many more than the five a day we are asked to follow. But, I have to make the time to go to the list each day to add five more MKMMAers. Also, meeting the tweet requirement is challenging me. I have sent out a few tweets this week. I need to review the tweet deck video again. I have watched it twice but still don’t quite understand the procedure. However, I will get it done and on time.
This class is having a positive impact on my interpersonal relationships. I notice that I am being observed and some of my actions are being duplicated. This is a good thing. I am becoming more organized. I am breaking my chore into smaller units and completing a designated portion each day with my targeted completion day as Friday. I have only two small steps left and probably will complete both at the same time.
This class has caused to me to take a different look at myself and my responsibilities. I am already a better person for participating in it and really look forward to seeing myself continue to grow and expand [mentally] in this process. My celebration this week is completion of the movie trailer version of my DMP. Initially I thought I would not be able to do it as I didn’t fully understand. However, when I sat down with pen in hand the words just seemed to flow. Another example of the effectiveness of this process.
