I didn’t get anything done today.
No, that’s not quite right. I didn’t get any “business” done today. That wasn’t the original plan, it just happened. And ya know what? It feels GREAT. The world didn’t end because I wasn’t glued to my computer console trying to catch up on one set of deadlines, work ahead on the next, or create impossible new ones for myself.
Instead, I slept in. I let a friend fix my car’s air conditioning. I stopped on the way to the auto parts store to let my wife sit and watch heavy machinery clearing a lot of some trees (she’s fascinated by such stuff…she only married ME for CONTRAST). I helped my daughter with a computer problem. I took my son to his favorite videogame place and let him try out some demos. I let my wife take us out to dinner (her idea). I took another nap afterward, then did some online reading.
I make no guarantees, and I am not a medical professional or psychiatrist, but I feel better for this day.
…and of course, just after midnight I read a post on the vo-bb.com about making a business plan, which shamed me into writing something up for myself, posting it, then looking at other people’s blogs and realizing I hadn’t made an entry in a few days (something I’ve set as a goal), came straight over here!
But hey…technically…it’s after midnight…right? The “Clark Kent” day is allowed to stand. Plenty of time to play “Superman” for everybody else tomorrow. …even if I do look horrible in tights.
