Hi Makers! We spend a lot of time focused on problems and obstacles, but research shows that there are benefits to acknowledging our achievements and celebrating our wins -- no matter how small. So let's use this discussion to share something we've done recently that feels like a positive. It may be something that happened in work life or personal life. Mine is that I recently accidentally adopted a stray cat, she's been a lovely addition to our house so far. ๐Ÿ˜ธ

Love this! I recently found out someone I mentored has landed their dream job and I'm really happy for them as they spent a long time looking for something with no luck. So happy their dedication has finally paid off.

Did you decide on a name for the cat, @aaronoleary? As for positive news, one of my good friends is getting married this weekend after 9 years with his partner. I'm super happy for them and excited to see them in LA this weekend. ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿผ

@aaronoleary Totally agree. The fact that she's literally saving lives every day helps me to put the challenges I'm facing into context.

This is a great post! @aaronoleary We also adopted an abandoned cat a few months ago! Feels good to do something for an animal in need and give them much-needed love. As for other things in personal life - I'm expecting my first baby and moving to a new home this week (with the cat) and planning my first PH launch ๐Ÿ˜ธ๐ŸŽ‰

I made this post on a whim on Friday and it's gone viral! Or at least in my terms and I love the discussion that it's opened up about making & buying new supplies. :) https://www.facebook.com/craftic...

I managed to find time to work on my project all throughout last week, while still keeping up with work and all other of life's responsibilities in a satisfying way. And - it's still super fun to work at, even though I'm well past the phase where I usually lose interest in my personal projects!

@dvdhllbrg how did you manage to be so productive? Very impressive.
David Hallberg Jรถnsson
@abadesi Thanks. ๐Ÿ™Œ I'm not really sure what the key was, I think it's a bit of a combination beteeen managing to cut down digital distractions and really enjoying the project putting me into a great flow. Fingers crossed that it lasts!

My daughter just turned 9 this week. Events like this are great reminders that as much as there is to do as a founder, being a father and spending time with my family is the most important job there is!
