I HAVE PUSHY GUIDES - This is their funny story from yesterday...
In fact they never let me get away with not following directions. They are a perfect match for me because I tend to, well, bend rules, be stubborn, find loopholes in clear directions, like to pretend I'm in control... Rebel souls need an equally rebellious team to keep up.
So, yesterday I was obsessing over numbers, of people coming into my class, of comments, of emails. I was having tons of fun but I wasn't really doing anything productive. Just obsessing every 32 seconds or so.
Until my Work Gmail broke. Incoming emails stopped coming in, I could see attachments and I couldn't open them. My personal email was fine but my work email was cut off (on my phone and computer on 3 different browsers. Yeah - I tested it).
No problem right? I'll just do something else.
Internet stops working at normal speeds - one page took 15 minutes to load. Oddly enough Pinterest loaded in seconds, just my 'work' pages stopped.
Damn. Screw that - you can't put baby in a corner right? So I got on my phone. At this point me and my phone were guiltily hanging out in the corner hoping no one was watching.
During a Facebook chat suddenly the video call feature literally just turned on - I didn't push it. All I heard was "BUSTED - WE SEE YOU!".
So I conceded and got offline, put my phone on Airplane mode and got prepared to record the next video. You know where this is going right? I 'filmed' the whole thing only to discover that my phone was not recording. And every time I hit the record button it would turn off immediately.
My guides are clear, direct and stubborn as shit.
And I love them for it...
Because they knew I need to step away and give space for the magic to happen.
Because when I STOPPED we crossed 100 people in the course.
Because if I HUSTLE things don't work.
Because today I feel like playing and the numbers aren't important anymore, that we can invite one person in to join us and my day will have fulfilled its mission.
We are given signs, direct and indirect, all day long.
FAIR WARNING - Better listen and act on them or you could be reassigned to my guides...
