120 mins. Disc Golf. Played a nice long course, in prep for the tournament this Sunday – first one of the season!
90 mins. warm core yoga (chilled out Bikram with some Bikram postures, and still plenty of sweating)
I got my cardio and stretching in today! Too much though, as 55 mins. is recommended, not 210 mins. I was definitely over it by the end of class. Evening is my lowest energy time and it showed! But I’m working during their morning classes. The instructor was very fun, and good at adjusting our postures.
I had an interesting meeting today. A friend wants to work on a project together. Working together could keep us from getting bogged down, because the project requires us to teach ourselves new skills. It would keep us accountable to our goal, and create more momentum than we could separately.
As we talked it became obvious to me that our working styles were very different. She strikes me as having a “push through the resistance”, “Make it work!” style. I’m working on “If it isn’t flowing, take a break” kind of style. And both of us are Taurean! To me that means we could butt heads if we’re not careful. Our friendship is more important to me than working together, so I don’t want to risk it if we’re not well matched.
I can see the value in her style, but that’s not what I’m about these days, and I’m not willing to change, because I feel like I’ve finally found what works for me, after years of trying to run my life everyone else’s way!
I think there are ways we could still support each other, and still each do our thing our respective ways. We could maybe even work together down the road, and our styles could complement each other. I feel we need to spend a lot more time getting to know each other on the business level first.
So my inner work today has been to listen to my inner voice and trust it, speak my truth while honoring someone else’s, and follow the beat of my own drummer. Could be important to practice these skills many times, so they become second nature, like I fantasize it is for some people! Maybe the opportunity was presented to me to give me an idea, but not necessarily go further with it. I will wait for guidance on it.
