Week One Pulse Check

Posted by on January 7, 2011 at 9:55 am.

So, here we are at the end of 2011’s week one. How is the new year treating you and more importantly, how are you treating it?

So far, I’ve managed to do a whack of stuff for PaperBox Books. I’ve created posters of the book covers and business cards to had out. I’ll have them uploaded and tested by the end of the day.

Any suggestions for other downloadable swag to help promote e-books?

I’ve sent out dozens of resumes for full time work. (2010 saw me cut back my consulting business to part time – I need a bigger travel budget.) Hopefully I hear back from some of them soon.

Oh, and I’ve finished reading Improv Wisdom: Don’t Prepare, Just Show Up, by Patricia Ryan Madson. It was good. My main take-aways were: 1) show appreciation for what you have now (don’t wait until later), 2) taking that first step is usually the hardest but you can’t move forward if you don’t try, 3) get off your butt and do it and give yourself permission to make mistakes along the way – that’s how you learn. Wise lessons!

As part of my ‘me-first’ strategy, I played hooky for an hour or so yesterday for a lunch date. Things seem to be looking up in that department… I’ll keep you posted.

so…

How are you making out so far with your goals/resolutions for 2011?
