Today is probably the first day in three months that I have felt on top of things. I’m not. But I feel that I am. And it’s because I did this:
One hour on this project
One hour on that
One hour on the other
It broke down slightly, there were urgent interruptions but having set aside an hour to do something, I did it. As it happens, the first task only took me 37 minutes. I don’t usually count that precisely but I enjoyed the thought that I could take the rest of the hour off so I noticed. And I took it off.
A later hour took 67 minutes, but.
All of the things I am working on took steps forward today and I have to feel good about that. I do admittedly also feel good that I got this idea from my own book, The Blank Screen.
Okay, so I’m feeling on top of things and just a teeny bit smug about that. But join me in smugness, will you? It feels good.
