Daily Accountability Checklist
All right, so my blogging has been pretty consistent, the podcast has been pretty consistent, so I want to share what else is in the works.
The Flow Talk series is pretty inconsistent at this point. I posted a couple of really short episodes, but I wanted to make them longer, which I filmed last week but still haven’t edited and posted yet.
Will I do it this week?
I’m already pretty busy, but here are my “to-do’s”
For one, I want to make an easier to see goal chart. I used to use a chart called my Daily Accountability Chart (DAC) that is really easy to use and visually see whether I’m hitting my daily and weekly goals.
I am going to post images of it now on this blog.

This has my most important daily activities so that I remember to do them and I can check them off which makes me feel pretty awesome and proud of myself.
I used to have a big binder on my desk and I would have my DAC in it, but why not go digital? It will save trees, plus because its on Google Drive I can do it pretty much anywhere and you can follow along if you like.

All right, one more big piece of news…
I am seriously thinking about competing in an upcoming jiu-jitsu tournament. It’s April 3rd. So, ideally, from the perspective of this blog, I would commit to doing the tournament, then post everything I am doing to prepare and flow up to the day of the tournament, and then see how I do.
So what do you say? Sound interesting? Watch your buddy Winston prepare to fight in a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu tournament?
But wait Winston, aren’t you all ‘peace and love’ and hippy and what-not?
Yeah, and to be honest, I’m not particularly competitive, so the idea of going to a competition doesn’t really appeal to me. EXCEPT…
What does appeal to me is this idea that the words “jiu-jitsu” translate to “the gentle way.”
So, if I approach it from a self-defense perspective, going in to mitigate threats against me, could I use what I’ve learned to protect myself against an attack without hurting the attacker?
Could I have fun doing it? Could I use my flowing style jiu-jitsu effectively or is it just pretend? Is it too “fancy” and fake?
Only one way to figure out really.
I have to get permission from my professor, Regis Lebre first before I would even be allowed to compete, but I’m definitely considering it. Stay tuned…
