Is There Something To Do?
Yesterday, I had a lot of errands to run. I dread running around halfway across town, back and forth, spending half my day in the car in an attempt to take care of things I ought to be able to take care of online. However, I noticed something yesterday that I thought I might share.
Because I had a whole bunch of things to do, my mind and body were ready to get to work at 3pm. This is not always the case. When I have quiet mornings when I have nothing to do, I find myself being comatose mid morning, and I give away the chance to get ahead on other things I would like to do to get a little ahead.
Don’t get me wrong, I like my mornings, but I like being up and moving and being ready to go. Working at night really screws with my system, especially when I think I’m spending too many hours in my office. (I imagine this is a common problem for people who work from home, now that I think about it.)
I suppose I can think about it as an example of Newton’s First Law. Are you moving? Ok, carry that momentum through and keep going. Or, as I have taken to asking myself lately, “Is there something to do?”
Ok. Do it. Then do something else.
