Be well. Work better. Repeat.

Ideas on balancing entrepreneurial drive with wellness, bringing to life new ideas while living well ourselves and making space for what matters in a well balanced life.

Hi,
It’s Friday afternoon. I’m feeling spent again.
The past week felt hopeful. I spent it in Switzerland with the Aragon team. 
(Here’s my team member profile if you’d like to read it.)
I got back Wednesday. Yesterday I went to an inspiring blockchain mini-conference in NYC.
Now I feel spent. I feel exhausted. 
I became aware of feeling this way on Friday afternoons a while ago. That’s when I didn’t really enjoy the work I was doing. 
Now I’m enjoying the work I’m doing. I’m still feeling spent and drained on Friday afternoon. I still have a hard time letting go into the weekend.
I used to drink myself through this feeling. The drinking started Friday afternoon. The drinking continued through the weekend into Sunday.
The drinking numbed me to what I feel now.
Now I’m trying to be open to the experience, even if it’s not a pleasant one!
I think it’s a reminder to me that Just Rolling with It’s an evolution. It’s a journey without an end. 
I’m OK with that now. I’m learning that life is the journey itself. The ups and downs may change, yet not go away.
With that, I’m keeping this update short. I missed last week’s update and didn’t want to miss two in a row. That’s why I’m pushing through this one :)
Tomorrow’s a new day. I feel grateful to understand I can feel recharged on Saturday morning. It’s a big change from feeling hungover.
How do you experience Friday afternoons? Do you experience them as a chance to finally escape your week?
Let me know by replying directly to this email.
