Day 362 of 362

Mission (mostly) accomplished...

Out of 362 possible days to the whole "dress-up" thing, I only missed two. One was based on my misjudging tattoo after-care times (by a LOT), and the other was due to me being very ill on that particular day. There have been days where I've been late (like today, by design), or I haven't been at the store for long, but I missed no others. Not even when I went to a trade show where game store owners are known to "let their hair down", I was the best-dressed one there.

So... 360 divided by 362 means, percentage-wise, I scored a 99.4475138121547% on my self-assigned goal. That's actually close enough to perfect by most scientific standards that I'm gonna count this one as a win.

Where do I go from here? Well, the habit is pretty ingrained in me now, so I don't think we'll see much in the way of slacking in that department. I'm thinking there won't be any more "362" posts, as it will be a new year. Plus, we're in the process of interviewing people for the store to work part time so I can actually get a day off here and there. Thus, doing another "362" would be pointless as I will not be at the store that many days in the coming year. I'll certainly take pictures and blog on the days I do go in, but the labels will probably fall more in the "Life, Business, Gaming, or (insert new label here) realm". "362" is done...

Thank you all for joining in... It's been a fun ride thus far. Let's see what 2012 brings us this year...

  1. Congrats, well done! Happy new year!

  2. Sometimes Don Quixote catches that dream. Way to go, and best for the new year.

  3. Congrats! The most fulfilling goals are definitely the ones you set for yourself.

  4. Thank you all for the congratulations. It's appreciated!

    Now that I spent a year improving my self, the next year is going to be spent improving the physical store.

    Slatwall and new shelving go up soon, as well as a new display case to replace our janky, 4th-hand one, plus a new point-of-sale system.

    We promised these changes a year ago... by the time we had some money saved up for them all,we weren't certain if we were staying at our current location. With only six months left on the lease, Loq and I were not at all certain we wanted to spend money to improve the place if the store was going to move in the long run.

    So, we're staying in our current spot, and we're going to make the most of it!
