Get out of bed early. That’s right, it’s all about shaking off the sleep and jumping out of bed. This is the #1 thing successful people do every morning. This separates them among the rest of mankind because admit it, getting up early in the morning takes a great deal of willpower. Our mistress the bed is just so warm and cozy, begging us to stay, never letting go. I used to wake up at 3am (for exams and academic competitions) or at 5am (during normal days). Now I wake up usually around 8am. I don’t know what happened.
So today is my deadline. I have to create 8 articles about a couple tech products. The problem is that I just can’t concentrate on doing what I should do. It’s 4:33pm and I haven’t even taken a shower yet.
Gross, I know, but this is my blog/diary and I want to be painfully honest, even to myself, all the more to myself.
I have to come up with 8 articles by the end of the day so that my employer can send me a ko-kard. I need the ko-kard to get my wage. And I need my wage as I’m planning to make a trip somewhere on the 3rd week.
I wish milk & cookies or a fruit plate or a tub of ice cream would magically appear on my side as I’m chasing my deadline. Please please please.
The moment something starts feeling like work – and not like an adventure – is the moment it’s my responsibility to change it. Not because I don’t like to work hard, but because there’s a difference between work that feels like it, and work that doesn’t.
So I’ve been taking some time to do some thinking, as of late.
