It’s the 22nd week of the year, and I am reviewing my goals to refine what is working and remove what is not working.
At the beginning of the year, I had a list of seven “every” day, week, or month activities, including:
Write 22 minutes every day
Physical activity or stretching for at least 22 minutes every day
Read The Daily Stoic every day
Deliberately speak Dave’s love language at least once a day
Deliberately speak my love language to MY SELF every day
Read Claim Your Worth every week
Block a “sabbatical” every seven weeks and take one weekend away
My health episode after getting COVID-19 threw a lot of these out of whack. But now I am back to all seven of my “every’s.”
I’ve completed a few things on my list, and I am currently working on these three:
Read 22 books and update on Goodreads with reviews for each book
Launch lanysha.com by July 1st (it’s live now, but needs improvement)
Lose 15 pounds by July 1st
Complete revisions on time and publish Me Power in September 2022
I’ve read 12 books this year, so only 10 more to go! I’m inching closer to my weight loss goals, and the book is coming together more and more each day.
Me Power Book Updates
One of my BlackLinkedIn co-founders, Martin Pratt, leads the #TeamNoSubtitle movement. I’ve tested Me Power and Empower is Me Power in polls on LinkedIn and FB groups, and the survey says Me Power wins. None of the subtitle options are working, so I am more likely to forego the subtitle these days.
I’ve been wrestling with the Introduction and Conclusion over the last couple of weeks. I must sheepishly admit that I am a bit behind schedule with getting a few more revisions done for my next set of chapters, but I am hoping to catch up this weekend.
I shared my introduction with a stranger on Twitter. His feedback blew me away! Now, I am friends with author and novelist, Stefan Tomasi. Although the introduction is still a work in progress, Stefan’s critical and positive feedback has encouraged me to share it with you. It’s in Google Docs so you can make comments and provide suggestions, and even see me working on it.
Today, my MRE asked, “What’s the ETA on these chapters?” I replied, “My GPS is still calibrating,” and laughed. We’ve set up mini-deadlines for the revising dance we’re doing. The final deadline is July 1st, and I’m hitting for that 🎯 NO MATTER WHAT.

⚡️ A year ago, I was in a different emotional state, preparing to attend my grandfather’s funeral. I thought about him, the time we spent together, and all the ways I honor his memory today. I am fortunate to have known him and will forever be his granddaughter.
