I think I’m going to call this condition “course brain.” I’m getting hyper-focused on releasing my course. The drama of the week has delayed my course launch by at least a week, but honestly, it doesn’t have to be officially “launched” until April 7. In fact, it doesn’t have to be a hard launch by that date anyway, it just has to be submitted to the contest judges by that time.

I’m not going to stress myself out over the deadline either. Everything will occur on the Universe’s timeline, not mine. Just give up and go with the flow. This week has served as a reminder that we can’t “make” things happen, no matter how much we want them to. In fact, I’m very grateful for the “drama” as it has taught me many things about myself, my friends, my business and my purpose.

My morning time with my audiobooks is becoming more and more precious to me. So many insights, so many unexpected pleasures. It also reminds me of the power of words, for both good and bad. This makes me especially careful about what I write and put out into the Universe as energy.

It also makes me less and less likely to read much social media. So much outrage, hate, and negativity. I honestly don’t think people pay much attention to what kind of energy they are putting out into the Universe.

In marketing, there is something called the “Fresh Eyes” test. It’s a technique where you look at your ad copy with “fresh eyes.” In other words, you read it as if you had no knowledge of the subject matter and then ask yourself if it is clear and concise and leads you to take the specific action that you intend the customer to take.

I try to do this with everything that I write. It’s difficult to do, to remove yourself from your words, but it’s a very powerful way to edit yourself. It does take practice and dedication, but then, so does much of our lives. Not reading social media does present some challenges for me personally, from a business perspective, but I’m “noodling” on a solution. We’ll see what I come up with.

Speaking of course brain, it’s time for me to turn mine on again and get back to work. May you love the life you create for yourself. Namaste & ciao for now.
