Mornings for Output, Evenings for Input

Mornings for Output, Evenings for Input

In the morning, I have creative thoughts to pursue in the evening … but then it’s too late.

I don’t know why I don’t learn. In the mornings I create elaborate schemes for later in the day, but later in the day is … it’s even right there in the words: “later” and “day.” It needs to just be morning.

It just needs to be a routine. Done. Boom. Basta.

You’d think maybe I’d make these decisions in the evening (when I’m not as sharp, creative, or awake). But no, they often come in the morning, when I’m chipper, awake, alive, ready. So what happened? What happens? It’s priorities. They get mangled, they get thrown out, but they also get real. Gotta pay the rent.

I’m so (no, SO) behind again. How did it happen? Don’t answer that. It’s only Jan. 22. The year just started. OK, I’ll stop. I know the answer. Let’s just drop it. In fact, I almost wrote, “When will I ever catch up?” but I bet I have a post titled something like that, hold on, yep:¬†When Am I Ever Going to Get Caught Up?¬†Ouch, that really hurts, it’s almost a year ago. When will things change? Ugh, I bet I have a post about that, too. OK, I need to stop. Where was I? Oh yeah, maybe I should just stick to creating fresh content (in so many ways fresh!) in the mornings. What if it gets to evening and it’s not done? Then I have to dig in and bear it, deal with it, do it. It won’t be pretty. It’s not pretty. Welcome to 2014, but could we pretend it starts in February?


Morning light is always ... brighter.

Morning light is always … brighter.

I don't like to call them excuses. They're priorities. With a handful of exceptions, we usually have a choice in our actions. They just need to be prioritized.
