Day 16: Recognizing weakness

Tonight’s post is going to be short, but its not without reason.

Of course, I can’t say the reason is a good one.

You see, I’m a much better writer in the mornings than I am in the evenings. In the mornings I’m fresh, clear and ready to tackle the world. The problem, though, is that this week I’ve head no deadlines to rush across, no looming dates to be aware of.

My weakness is procrastination, and she’s a sweet devil of a weakness.

You see, my status as a morning person (go ahead, judge) is something I realized long ago. I wake up before my alarm, I workout best in the morning, and I’d rather get to work early than stay late any day of the week. But even knowing this about myself, I’ve been doing the exact opposite: waiting until late at night to create posts like this one.

And go ahead, be honest … they aren’t exactly masterpieces. That’s why, starting tomorrow, you can expect my blogging schedule to shift earlier into the day. I know I’m most creative and self aware first thing in the morning, and that’s an energy I want to capture.

What about you? What’s your prime time?


Day 11: Phoning it in

Let’s go ahead and call this what it is: an obligatory blog (oblogatory?) post.

I told you I’d write every day, and while I broke that promise on day nine, I’m doing my best to keep up the habit.

Unfortunately, right now it’s 11:30 on a Saturday night and after a long-but-awesome day of hanging out with my family, I’m ready to call it a night.

So that means I’m phoning this one in. I’m too tired, and too full (thanks again for dinner, mom!) to get much of any substance into a blog post.

I hope you’ll forgive me. Tomorrow’s another day, right?

Right. Goodnight.
