Jig-saw Jazz & The Get-fresh Flow

Starting a post before 7AM is a challenge, because the coffee has yet to seep into my bloodstream and my eyelids are still working themselves unglued.  I’ve been staring at my laptop screen for the past quarter-hour and no great inspirations have jumped to mind.

I am not a morning person.

Which is unfortunate, because I’ve been doing well with getting out of bed on time, and even early for work…but still struggling to accomplish anything of value at the start of my day.

The observable lesson: go to bed earlier.

The deeper meaning: less concern with daily self-impositions.

We all have good days and we all have bad days.  But if I eliminated the incessant background nagging of my to-do lists…my waking hours could reach near-bliss heights.  A momentary evaluation of that one thing I might actually need to work on inevitably leads to a sort of Rube Goldberg mental spiral of “That Which Needs To Be Done ASAP.”  If I’m honest with myself: no, the sky will not rain down on me if I don’t cross each line item off by the end of my day; no, I am not Superman; no, I am not saving the world.

Ironically, if I were budgeting the time to get to more meetings, I think I would be less fraught with worry over my daily agenda/schedule.
Point being: it’s OK to spend a morning on naught but two cups of coffee & a blog post.
