Comedy podcast including personal development themes and challenges, guest interviews, personal stories, Shots n' Crafts parties, and wild times and discussions. Sometimes rants. The philosophy and motto of this podcast is Work Hard/Play Hard. Get successful so you can reward yourself with wild times, baby. This podcast is geared towards other comedians, aspiring comedians & podcasters, and the general public (non-comedians who love comedy). I also swear a lot so you'll have to get over that. I temper it with eloquent speaking and useful information, though, so there's that.. love me or leave me.

Join me as we continue learning how to set goals. And of course I talk about my personal life off and on throughout.

Here is a template I created that I've been using in the mornings to plan my time and goals in the short-term, mid-term, and long-term. This is just a start. We will add on longer-term goals later.

Morning planning and goals check-in:

 (You can modify this to fit your life.)

(List them and add checkboxes to check them off as you complete them.)

How can you exceed expectations in your fitness/health routine?  (Make a list.)

 

How can you exceed expectations with friends/family?  (Make a list.)

 

Other Priorities/Action Items with Milestones & Target Dates:  (Make a complete list with milestones and due dates.)

 

****

Just copy and paste this whole section of lists into your e-mail calendar as a recurring appointment "Daily planning" at some half hour time slot that works for you every morning.

And modify it to fit your life and what you want to focus on, and how you want to focus on it. This is just what has been working for me.

As long as you do SOME type of planning in the morning before distractions take you...you are on the right track.

I have my slot allocated in my calendar daily, Monday through Friday, from 9 - 9:30 am, which is right after I've gotten to work and had my coffee and can think clearly about how I want to navigate my day for success.

Setting goals gives you purpose, which is good for managing/fighting depression. 

Add value to yourself and someone else by focusing on goal setting.

In this podcast I read an article that is poorly written by a doctor, and it really annoys me. But the content is good.

In this episode I check in with you after my absence and talk about whatever comes to mind, including:

  • Ending our organization and decluttering challenge with some closing tips on purse and wallet organization
    • I forgot to mention it, but buy a purse organizer insert. They sell them in any size and color on Amazon.
  • An overview on the next challenge (goal setting)
  • Roller derby and what I am doing next
  • Tidbits related to my personal life

Join me!

I complain about the challenge, tell you about my sectional couch, and blab about random shit.

I also admit defeat in this challenge, but I am not giving up.

I still am getting *some* stuff done. Just not as much as I had hoped. Not nearly. And not consistently. And it's weighing me down.

It's the albatross around my neck. Not a good look.

I must conquer this overwhelmed feeling with progress.

Why is it that every time I attempt to get organized and master this closet, I all of a sudden feel SUPER tired and just want to lay down and watch movies?! UGH!

Our minds sure are powerful, aren't they? I make myself tired and sap my own energy from dreading simple tasks that would make life easier.

Let's push through the feelings that weigh us down and force ourselves to get the boring tasks and errands overwith. My paperwork is not done and I know I have nice nuggets of jokes in there. There is tax-related stuff I need. Insurance documents. I need everything to be online and it's not.

Join me or not. This one isn't really helpful in any way.

I am very likable so if for some weird reason you don't like me, please feel free to suck a dick.

If you DO like me, please join me for this podcast. It's made for you.

Let's get wild.
