Hey everyone!
How was your week? It’s been a rough one for me. My daughter woke up at 4:30 am almost every day. As I’ve gotten older, I don’t function as well on less sleep. I couldn’t code much for Diversify Tech.
I focused on planning and strategy. It was actually great to pause and reflect. I realized I was spending too much effort on things that I shouldn’t at this stage. I reprioritized and cut down my to-do list. I essential saved time by not working 😆.
Cheers,
Veni

Friendly reminder to walk into the week with expectation and high as hell standards. Especially when you have invested GREATLY in yourself.

Life’s too short and inequality is too real to accept anything less than you deserve.
