Change Today’s Outcome
#31 Exhausted from work and do something anyway
Do you know the feeling of a week’s great work? To finally be available to relax for a day. For example, read a book, watch a movie, spend time in bed.
After days of taking massive action, I got the feeling of just letting myself relax for a day.
After two hours of doing it, I realized something. Is it worth to spend a day doing nothing exciting or productive? ‘No’ my intuition said.
I decided to ignore my exhaustion and make something happen. I dressed up and went outside.

What I Did
The day before I got an invitation to a discussion group. It’s fun to do things like this, but it’s a bit demanding to be on your toes.
I sent away a text message anyway and went over. We had a great time.
We ate and spoke for two hours. It was better quality time than reading a book.
What I realized afterward were that we have much more energy than we think. When you do something scary/thrilling/exciting your battery charges up again. We humans are fascinating.

How You Can Apply What I Learned
- When you feel down, do something exciting. It will give you more energy than an energy drink ever could do. Why? Because you often get energized for the whole day. Instead of just 30 minutes.
When do you receive your best ideas? For me, it’s in the quiet. When I’m in the shower, when I’m drinking a quality coffee or when I’m waiting for the train. From nowhere an idea pops up. It’s like my subconscious mind creates something out of everything I’ve learned.
When an idea pops up I’ve got a choice to make. To either let the idea remain just an idea, or make it become reality. Today I made my idea become reality.
