Coming home from very lonely places, all of us go a little mad; whether from great personal success, or just an all-night drive, we are the sole survivors of a world no one else has ever seen.

I’m typing this blog post as I wait for this week’s YT video to render (currently at 66% uploaded.) Better late than never. The last two videos and posts were typically up by middle of the day on Saturday. We’re a minute shy of 10pm and I’m still at it.
It’s indicative of the kind of week it’s been. Nothing bad, just a lot of changes and events here and there which shifted a lot of my tasks.
While I didn’t get all of my weekly goals checked off, it would have been much worse if I didn’t have any schedule in place at all. A year ago, something like this would have completely thrown me off guard. I’m not sure what changed this time around but for once, I’m ok with it.
Of course, there are certain times where I feel it’s optimal to do certain things.
For instance, meditation first thing in the morning is what works for me. But this past week, I actually missed a day (it was that busy), and on a couple of days, including today, I have to put it off until later. The same thing can be said with my workouts. I prefer to do them during a certain time and certain days, but this week, I had to bump two days towards later in the week. The important thing is that I get them done as these are habits I’m trying to instill for the long term.
Goals that were reached this week:
What I did not get to do in its entirety:
Plan by week, augmented with revisiting nightly to see if there are any changes that could affect the rest of the schedule for the next day.
What doesn’t work:
Not getting early enough on weekends. I need these crucial quite times to get work done.
Time to wrap this up. The vid has rendered and is posted.
Have a great week. Make some stuff. Do kind things.
