Busy week here… lots of time spent staring at the computer screen, although I did “ditch” work on Monday afternoon to read a book. I couldn’t help myself and it set me back for the entire week.
Did you know that the mind/body has limits on self-control? It’s not an infinite resource within us.
I can’t remember where I read that (and I don’t have the ambition to cite it, but feel free to go ahead and look it up yourself), but the idea that we only possess so much willpower and self-control makes me feel a whole lot better! It helps explain why I’m so “done” at the end of a busy day. I work with so much focus, with self-imposed deadlines and, let’s be honest… I try to avoid working Friday – Sundays – so I pack a whole lot in. It works for me, but the balance isn’t ideal… hmmm…
Few other random thoughts:
- The song in my head today is “Cherry Cherry” by Neil Diamond… WHY?? Help!
- It’s Super Bowl weekend – should be fun!
- I’m cleaning the house today.
- I need to make a clear decision on my work future or decide at least one direction – it’s nice to have options.
Life is good. Peace out!
