  • Think about plans for lunch


  • Drive to gas station for Mt. Dew
  • Plan on picking up food, but bummed they still have breakfast out


  • Drive to meet local business owner and discuss business and potential ideas
  • Wonder about ways to add on to my current business or leverage another one to work together

  • Drive to work to start opening the shop
  • Think about all the things I need to get done while it’s quieter in the afternoon
