Final 120 Days

Married 36 years

Yesterday before leaving Orlando at 2pm.
TEXxAUK VIP ticket sample 2019
TEDxAUK VIP ticket sample sneak peek yesterday.

Writing this from Dubai airport, effectively at 6am Orlando time.

The 14-hour Emirates flight in business class was nice. Only able to snag four hours sleep?

Why?

We left Orlando at 2pm. Couldn’t fall asleep until 9pm.

And so it goes.

PS. When this goes public on June 25…Happy 36th wedding anniversary.

Delayed mental writing

Apple alarm clock
Last night.

 

Early call time this morning at the Rosen Shingle Creek.

Leadership Keynote speech 8:30-10:00am.

Grateful for six hours sleep, versus five, or even four.

Sleep impacts my attitude.

Always has.

Eight hours (and a positive attitude) is always the goal.

Today’s writing began at 5pm instead of 5am.

Sleep is the new coffee

Cinderella Castle clock
Time waits for no one.

 

The only time i hit the snooze button is when i’m exhausted.

But coffee can fix that, right?

What if the only reason coffee serves us is because we are tired and unmotivated?

What if we got eight hours sleep every night?

What if we had a clear, concise, and compelling purpose?

What usefulness would coffee have that sleep and purpose couldn’t provide more strongly?

Self Control (Impossible?)

The rhythm of a regular bedtime

iPhone calculator app screen shot
Today is the 2,558th consecutive day of writing five differently-themed blogs.

 

The rhythm of a regular bedtime is the foundation of self-discipline. What time we went to bed last night directly impacts how we felt waking up this morning.

And how we wake up drives how our morning goes, and our morning impacts the rest of the day. This is so painfully obvious that it’s almost embarrassing to write about.

Trust me, i’m fully aware of life’s unpredictability. But we can’t use fear (reality) of the “unexpected” to give us permission to not stay focused, and control what we can control. And we can control when we go to bed.

Saying we can’t is lying, in my opinion.

Imagine going to bed at relatively the same time for 2,557 days (nearly seven years) – how would that change things?

PS. Trust me, sometimes the only way i can get all the work done is to sacrifice sleep. The point here is that there are exceptions to every rule. And that we should never allow our occasional exceptions to become the standard.

Walking Wounded @ Mid Life?

Walking wounded at mid life?

Sleeping wounded at mid life?

Waking wounded at mid life?

Awakened wounded at mid life?

I’ve been all four. The one that works best, in my opinion, is awakened wounded.

Ever wonder which one you are?

We are all wounded. Ever heard the phrase, “Life’s a ‘beech’ and then you die”? Things only become cliches if they’re true.
