Living like you mean it. Yeah, sure looks good on paper.

Woke up at 4:00am (75 minutes ago) feeling groggy. Tempted to hit snooze. i’m literally never tempted to hit snooze. Back in the day (Disney Resort Operations), i used to do it every morning – for 15 years.

Moving to Disney Institute in 1999, i no longer worked crazy shifts and started having regular sleep cycles. The snooze button became irrelevant because i focused on a regular bed time and an eight-hour a night sleep target.

Staying up until 10pm-ish to watch Olympic Track & Field finals and getting up to be at High School Cross Country practice by 5:50am has led to a short-term sleep disruption.

And i am reminded that my incentive for doing this is i am watching these Olympics as my last Olympics.

i may live long enough to watch the 2020 Olympics, but i am not planning on it.
