Get On With It

Writing and drawings about work, family and the stuff in-between

What I learned last week (#172): solo parenting

A weekly selection of what I was reading, drawing, writing, and doing.


Last week was weird. It was one of those weeks where I had a bunch of unplanned and planned time off work but felt like I had much less time than usual.

Most of “the busy” was because I was solo parenting and I had my playbook ready.

My wife and I celebrated our seventh wedding anniversary over a bowl of noodles.

I was reminded that long lists are guilt trips.

Related to lists, 10 visuals that will change how you see success and productivity might spark something new for you as it did for me.

I outlined my hope to break the trance of unworthiness as one of my amplify goals for April.

I re-learned that running is important to me after I looked around and realized I was feeling better.

I learned a great perspective on why listening is so important and hard.

103 bits of advice I wish I had known from Kevin Kelly has some new gems in it. I’ve been thinking about these two (in totally different contexts). 😃

When you forgive others, they may not notice, but you will heal. Forgiveness is not something we do for others; it is a gift to ourselves.

Anything you say before the word “but” does not count.

I watched Dune (finally) and Until the Wheels Fall Off and really enjoyed them both. What skateboarders do to their bodies is another level of crazy.

I shared my favorite albums of April topped by Denzel Curry. Walkin!!!


Last but not least, check out what I’m up to now.

Comments welcome!
