For the next few weeks it looks like I’ll have two back-to-back, recurring appointments in the early afternoon. I can’t say I’m happy about that. Going out into the world and doing things doesn’t always agree with me, but I’m usually able to handle it when the things come one at a time.
Two appointments in rapid succession? Not so much.
As luck would have it, the first appointment isn’t until 12:30 so I have plenty of time to work in the morning before having to venture out into the Big Room. And mornings are my most productive times anyway.
I’ve run into several writers this week with a similar creative schedule. They wake up, pour some coffee into the appropriate orifice, then sit down to work. I wonder what the overall percentage of people with that sort of pattern is.
Are you at your most functional first thing in the morning, or does evening bring out the best you have to offer?
I will spend three hours each day working on freelance writing. Done.
I will spend one hour each day working on this site. Yup.
I will spend one hour a day doing whatever the hell I feel like doing. Of course.
I will spend two hours a day reading books. In spades!
I will spend one hour a day doing something to improve my physical health. Goddammit!
My average on the health front has gone up from last week to around twenty minutes a day, mostly spent walking although I have added five minutes of stretching into my daily routine. I’d say I’m at a reasonable level of exercise, but there’s more to my health goal than that–hence the hour I’m trying to devote to it.
Oh well, progress.
How about you?
