As I was thinking about blog topics to write about, several things started running through my head. Here they are in no particular order:
- What am I going to write about this week?
- I’ve got two clients I’ve talked to recently who have been struggling coming up with blog topics of their own. How can I help them get out of their own way and pay attention to what’s going on around them every day? This blogging stuff is hard sometimes.
- To that point, I had a conversation recently with two friends, one who is a business owner, about how blogging is hard and how they thought it was easier for me because “you like to write”. In fact, I don’t always like to write. I tend to write when I’m inspired to write…and that doesn’t always happen when I sit down to write.
I’ve been in a funk for the last several days. To be fair, my wife Missy and I just got back from an early 20-year-anniversary trip to Maui so this could just be a “back-to-reality” hangover. We were there for 10 days. It was incredible. But the flight back was long. There’s a 5-hour time difference. And we were “welcomed” back to Kansas City with cold, rainy, rainy, rainy (Did I mention rainy?) weather…and allergies. It’s been several days since we got back, but the funk endures. I’m sleeping well, but not feeling rested. I can tell my brain isn’t “on point”.
I’ve done all kinds of things to try to bust the funk. #bustthefunk
I worked out.
I threw down a 5-hour energy drink (I don’t drink coffee and times like this I wish I did.)
I’ve taken naps.
I watched some Netflix.
I played golf (if you’ve seen my golf game, this probably wasn’t the ideal way for me to try to #bustthefunk)
I took some allergy medication.
But I’m still not 100%.
So I thought I’d ask for a little help because I know we all go through times like this. When you do, how do you #bustthefunk? Leave a comment below or drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
