人们只想要奥利奥

Who would 您 be if 您 were already ‘enough’? what would 您 do if money and talent were not an 障碍?

我第三份工作/激情的大合同已经开始。我昨天努力工作,准备就绪,今天早上才交付第一期。我将在今天下午晚些时候到太空去看看’并寻找问题,指导和集思广益。是的,我昨天确实工作了很长的一天,但我也跑步,阅读并吃了相对健康的食物,包括自制蔬菜汤。实际上,在我周二称重时,我比7月1日重了2.2磅,所以’不太破旧。这意味着对蛋糕的依赖程度有所下降。昨晚我在晚上9:30之前还在床上,晚上10:00睡着了。充足的睡眠使我的生活大大改善。这可能是生命的关键’s problems…至少对我来说,至少今天。

如果我已经够了,我’d(诚实地)停止(全部)我的三个工作之一…工作#2。我在那里的工作支离破碎,除非我拒绝,否则客户永远不会收到我的消息’我想卖给他们一些东西,而我不’t know what i’交付一半的时间,’我的技能和他们的需求不匹配。它’就像我必须不断说服他们他们需要我。而不是找谁‘do’需要我的服务,而是卖给他们。

这是一个灯泡的时刻。

如果我停在这里,请原谅我。一会儿。

天哪,这就是为什么我继续写博客。这样我就可以自己解释一下。 (它’如果有人在我的闲逛中得到帮助,那就太好了,但是请原谅今天巨大的肚脐注视自我中心的本性’s post.)

在这里是:停止试图说服世界他们需要蠕虫的创可贴(他们不’t, and 您’会花很长时间试图说服他们相信他们会这么做。不要试图说服世界,他们需要一个新的粉红色手提包(他们不要’t,并且无论如何都不要买那么多他妈的东西。)不要试图说服世界,他们应该付钱给你,以帮助他们从沙发上站起来(为什么他们’准备下沙发了,他们’会找到你)。不要试图说服人们购买这种西兰花而不是购买西兰花(因为,实际上,他们只想要奥利奥;找到一种方法来出售健康的自制爱奥利奥并随便完成)。

如果我没有的话,我永远都不会想通’清醒。喝酒时,我正处于工作1,工作2的跑步机上。我刚刚度过一天。现在在那里’思考事物的时间和精力。

现在我’ve mixed metaphors so much that 您 can’完全不要跟着我,我这样说:

亲爱的美女。从今天起,不要再浪费精力试图将商品卖给那些不愿意做的人 ’t want them. Stop trying to convince anyone of anything. If they want oreos instead of carrots, then sell them oreos. And if 您 find oreos personally repelling, then just look away and do something else.

经常听到的业务建议:“Where should 您 set up a hotdog stand? In front of a bunch of hungry hotdog eaters.”直到今天我才真正了解它。直到现在,这一分钟。一世’我刚刚完成了我的工作#3 /激情/东西,我意识到’s the easiest work i’ve ever done. there’这是一个巨大的市场,我几乎无法跟上。 {DU!唤醒俗气的婴儿}

注意自我。再试一次。亲爱的美女。您’重新分心。在这里听:

Sell to people who WANT to buy 您r stuff.  Stop trying to convince anyone of anything.

(the parallels with *real* life, of course, are evident. stop trying to convince people that they need to change, just be 您.  be 您 as much as 您 can. do 您r thing with love and care. oh my god i know understand the fucking 1970s touchy-feely-hippie book title: do what 您 love and the money will follow … oh. my. god.)

美女

我想将此放在网上,以追究自己的责任。我想记录一下我头上的声音。我厌倦了考虑喝酒。上次饮用日期:2012年6月30日

  • 善良…

    也是为什么我也写博客…..
    我弄明白了。
    或找出答案并分享(好像有人在乎!哈!)
    而且没有清醒….nada, none of it.

    喜欢这个 !

  • 那是一个很大的启示。有时人们不’虽然不知道他们想要什么。在过去,帮助他们解决问题是我的工作。现在我想我’如果我让其他人自己决定或在他们想要的时候一直呆在沙发上,那会更快乐。它’不值得产生负面影响。

    Huh. (yes lots of inner dialogue going on but I am going to follow my own advice and just shut up). Thank 您 for the post.

    • 您’对。很多人不’我不知道他们想要什么,我确实花了很多时间试图帮助人们做出决定。它’s just exhausting. i’我很高兴我现在有工作#3不时地插入’严格来说是一个供求问题’很多需求)。我想我’我厌倦了尝试。它’s easier some days just to put 您r head down and do physical work. my #3 job is quite a bit like farming: work, sow, replant, repeat. Let it rest, pack it up, ship it off. meet clients face to face, see their faces, hear their suggestions, start again.

  • “如果我没有的话,我永远都不会想通’t sober.”

    不可思议’除去酒精后,我们发现了什么奇迹。这是我继续期待清醒的事情之一,有些很小,有些很大。

    Love D太太 comments as well. Perfectly stated by both of 您.

  • Loving it. Love it. Love the slow reveal of the wonders sobriety can bring. Love that 您 are fully committed and here and sharing it clearly with us so we can reap the benefits of witnessing what subtle changes can occur when the wine is taken away, slowly slowly some of them (after the immediate ones like no hangovers or sick guts or guilt). Love all of it! xxxx

  • In reading this post and then 您r last, I was going to comment that I want oreos and please just sell me some oreos, they don’t even have to be healthy ones. And then I saw what 您 wrote about missing cake, but life without it is better. You gave me something to noodle through with regard to my sometimes ridiculous cravings for sweets, which never make me feel all that good. So yes, please get to work on healthy oreos 😉
