❤️💣 Mission: Don't Like It?

Don't Like It?


The Background

I spent most of Hot Girl Summer taking care of myself: exercising, eating right, working out, playing basketball, and I was the healthiest I'd been in a long time, feeling really good. Then my injured back started acting up again, I missed out on a road trip I was planning with my brother, I couldn't exercise like I had been, and it kind of sent me into a tailspin.

Now it's Cozy Boy Autumn, and for the past month or so I've been a little hurt, pretty sedentary, and eating desserts for meals like . . . well, like someone who eats desserts for meals. I'm rapidly turning into a portly gentleman, and if I keep this up much longer I'll be in real trouble (for my personal health and weight goals). Yesterday I decided it's time to make a change, and that's where this week's mission comes from.

The Mission

This week, identify something that you don't like, and make a change to it.

This one should be really easy for everyone because you can choose your execution level.

Small: See that ugly trash on your lawn or your neighbor's? Take a few minutes and clean it up!

Medium: Don't like how your co-worker has all the asset files organized in the team folder? Offer to spend an hour with them going through and organizing it, for everyone's sake.

Big: Frustrated with your recent weight gain? Take the time to think through an improvement plan you can commit to for a time period (this is a love bomb for yourself).

Jump onto Discord to tell us what you did and see what others are doing: Love Bomb Discord
(once you're inside, you'll see this mission under the Weekly Missions category)

See you in there!

P.S. - Perfect timing today as I write up this mission: Facebook shows me a post from 10 years ago. I could've written this yesterday and it would be just as valid. I guess people don't really change much.

Every Tuesday I come up with an idea to make a difference for someone in a small, personal, creative way, then I send out that idea as a mission assignment to everyone in our group. Over the next week, we all spend 10 minutes to accomplish it in our own way for people in our own lives.

Morning, friends! I was doing the Love Bomb thing during the latter half of 2023, and then I took a break for the Christmas holiday but never came back. I ended up having to deal with a few issues at once (and still am, actually): loss of a job, some personal health stuff, some family things, etc. I'm still in a place where I need to take care of myself and focus on bigger things, so I'm going to do that. Love Bomb will be on indefinite hiatus for the time being. I appreciate you all being a...

Today (Monday night as I write this) is Christmas Day, and next week around this time is New Year's Day, so I'm taking the time off from love bombs. After that it'll be the end of the holiday season, and into the teeth of the long, cold winter. God willing we'll all see it through to the other side together :) It's been another weird year for me, full of stops and starts and big personal/career changes and more than a little stress. The kinds of things most people go through every five years...

From the Beginning The Background I just got back from taking a walk with my brother during a break in my work. It was a nice piece of downtime during this very busy month where I'm transitioning myself into a new (much more fun and creative) career as an AI developer. It made me realize that he's been there through all of my twists and turns, ups and downs, and personal growth over the years, and I'm thankful for him. The Mission This week, spend 10 minutes to acknowledge someone who was...
