What a difference a day makes.
Yesterday I was feeling lost, after I missed sessions I was eager to see, I misinterpreted sessions and had a negative day. I felt as though Ignite was not for me. I felt that Ignite was targeted at a different type of audience. I found out today that it was likely two factors to my problems. Some lessons learned and pro-tips coming up.
I dont think it was down to this alone, but, I think some caffeine helped me get up and going. Well, it was a number of factors. Let me elaborate.
I stopped drinking caffeine in mid January of this year after some trial and error to try and reduce headaches I’ve had almost all my life. I was a usually a two cup a day coffee person. That’s two strong cappuccino’s though. So 4x shots of espresso. Quite a bit of caffeine to be drinking EVERY DAY.
This elimination of caffeine was helped a lot and I certainly feel better for it and not having to rely on that morning pick me up. Today though, I was determined to get back on course. I made myself an awesome black tea with a slice of lemon. The lemon made it. A small half teaspoon of raw sugar later and that warm feeling of routine got my headspace right. A daily cuppa in the morning was how I started my day for almost 10 years. So getting back to that was awesome.
The second important factor was taking advantage of hall C2’s massive screen. See below..
You’re able to sit anywhere in front of the 8 x 4K projector made mega screen and catch up to 8 sessions at a time. Audio is provided via 8 channel remote. Truly the smartest thing to do. I have no idea what I wasn’t doing this for the first session every day. Instead of running around early morning and rushing, potentially missing a session (list yesterday) catching it all from here is simple and easy. After breakfast in C2, walk across the hall and take a comphy lounge seat and settle in for session #1 of the day. Dont like it, change the channel and watch another session without having to run anywhere! I wish I had thought of doing this from day 1!!!
