(و ˃̵ᴗ˂̵)و Nº234 The Vision for Precision 📐 👀
By Jon Woodroof • Issue #234 • View online
Bam! …And we’re back!
2022 kicked off so full steam for me that it took a few weeks to get back on track with the newsletter. I’m stoked to be working towards 250 issues of this newsletter and stepping up my personal & professional game as (hopefully) the pandemic begins to wane.
Twotone has been kicking off the new year with new clients (hi trail.camp!), projects, rides, and more. Workspace 6 is teeming with new tenants (hi Mel!) and, tomorrow, even new tables for all tenants!
Though, I don’t have a personal list of resolutions and/or goals to share (but do you really care? 🙃 I do want to kick off 2022’s first issue with some actionable value for you. : )
I first started following V.Vale when Jess from No Fun interviewed him last year and he recently did share his resolutions. I think they’re really great, so I picked my fave 10 for you below:
(my comments in parentheses)
  1. SIMPLIFY LIFE: a) DO MORE by doing LESS! Get rid of conflicts, interruptions, distractions, lesser projects & flaky people b) DO ONE PROJECT AT A TIME. As above. NO multitasking. Don’t text and drive. Don’t walk and chew gum. c) Say NO—A LOT. Your only free will is your power to say NO.
  2. Settle unpaid obligations to clear your mind of past guilt, which preys on your subconscious and “drags you down”.
  3. Make a list of goals, post it in plain sight, and keep adding to the list. (I use Workflowy for this and keep it above other windows on my screen)
  4. Attend as many parties as possible & invite your friends to parties. Remember parties??
  5. Make a list of your best friends/allies, and focus on having fun with them, regularly. Zen proverb: “Old friends, new clothes—not the reverse!” related: More time with OLDEST FRIENDS – You have to do outreach. They won’t call you!
  6. Invite friends over for lunch/dinneror at least tea/snacks. (We’ve got tri-weekly Lunch at Lester’s & got the same going for Workspace 6 & Workcycles – especially nice now that my step-son Brayden & friend Jordan both work there!)
  7. Mutual aid is the key to surviving the (possibly calamitous) future. Hope for the best, but prepare for the worst! (together!)
  8. Save the first waking hour for yourself. Don’t talk to ANYONE. Stay in bed & write in a paper journal. No computer/cell phone/music. Harvest your dreams & verbal/visual ideas/whatever wells up from your subconscious, before it flies away… (I’ve gotten back in the groove of waking up early!)
  9. Before sleeping, ponder a list of problems for your subconscious to “solve”.
  10. Minimize computer “browsing”/scrolling. Minimize email, social media. Erect your own firewall against the billions of distractions findable on the internet. (for me this is a time limit on insta & using RescueTime)
Great list, right?
Well, one of the things that I do aspire for this year is to have a vision for precision to hit the nail on the head with every issue. If you reach the bottom, (hint) there is a feedback button to click & give me input for improvements!
