Welcome to this week’s edition of "Just a few things," a weekly blog dedicated to sharing a few things I've been doing, thinking, reading or learning throughout the previous week. Many of these things are inspired by my interactions with you via email or social media, so feel free to drop a comment and share a few things yourself! Let’s get to it.

I missed last week’s edition… what’s up with that?!
I’ve been traveling for my adult job / career / corporate gig and haven’t had much time (see the next thing) to place on Combat Flags over the last few weeks. Last week I was in gorgeous San Diego for a conference and this week I’m in snowy, freezing Minneapolis. I’ve got one more round of trips scheduled and then things will be back to normal!
What quote is making me think?
“You don’t ‘find’ time to do what is important. You MAKE TIME. GO.” – Jocko Willink
Ok, for those of you who have been a round for a while, you know I am a Jocko fanatic. Fate has a way of dropping these Jocko bombs in my lap when I know what I need to do but am dragging my feet on doing it. This is one of them.
The absolute easiest excuse in the world is to say “I don’t have time,” or “time got away from me.” But I continue to be amazed at how much time I can waste saying I’ll do it in a minute and then mindlessly scroll through Facebook or Instagram or watch a movie or watch some TV.
The time we own is the only thing we have control over… and letting outside events influence and control MY time has got to stop.
What’s one thing that YOU’RE proud of for the week?
Enough about me this week :) I want to hear from you. Leave a comment with one thing that you’re proud of or, conversely, not too happy with and want to improve on from the week.

I’ve also got lots of cool stuff up in the store. If you haven’t checked it out in a while, swing by and check out some freedom!
