I’ve decided to call June-August 2015, â€œ90 Days of Awesome.â€ (Yes, I know technically there are 92 days in those three months but â€œ92 Days of Awesomeâ€ sounds weird, so just go with it.)
I am making a conscious decision to do awesome things this summer, but maybe not awesome in a way that you’re thinking. 2015 has been an amazing year so far for me â€“ new job, Dad 2.0 Summit, The Undeniable Tour, and speaking at Ungagged in London are just some of the highlights â€“ but I want to shift gears a bit for this summer. There are only two hard and fast rules for the 90 Days of Awesome:
- No airplanes.
- No dog kennels.
While everyone else is fleeing the desert for cooler temperatures, Rosie and I are staying home. I want to work my ass off, focus on my health, exercise more, see my friends, and tackle some projects that I’ve been putting off. At first glance, it may sound like I’m going to be kicking back this summer, but that’s not true. (I’m pretty sure I’m incapable of â€œkicking back.â€) I will be busy as ever, but I want it to be a different kind of busy â€“ a more purposeful busy, with more exchanges of ideas and connecting with more people.
I’ll also be laying the foundation for the fall and winter â€“ especially in regards to speaking engagements. I have two speaking gigs already booked and at least four more in the works. I have a few other project ideas that I can’t start until the fall, but I can clarify my ideas and plans this summer.
Of course, I’ll keep you in the loop on what I’m doing and I may invite you to participate in some of the shenanigans of the 90 Days of Awesome.
