I can't say unplugging has been easy, or that I've been as consistent as I hoped, but it has been helping a bit.  I am starting to recapture a bit of the inner monologue that had been seeking to be replaced with outer distraction.  The longer commute and busier work pretty much wipe me out by the time I get home.  The temptation to veg is sometimes overwhelming.

Tonight I am working on a message that I am giving on Sunday.  I'm just going to recycle something I wrote a few years ago, but I've been putting off refreshing myself on it.

After spending three weeks on the road for work, I have realized how unfocused I really am these days. Even with few of the usual distractions in my lonely hotel room, I maybe got in one productive night. That night was cancelled out by a different night wasted watching Jersey Shore reruns.

I want to be better. I have so many things I want to work on.

I am self-instituting a ban on all distractions after 9:00 PM on weekdays.  9:00 PM will be my creating/renewing time.  If you see me online/being a bum after 9:00 feel free to get all up in my face about it.

Things to do in said time:
  • Read
  • QT
  • Journal
  • Work on book
  • Write music
  • Play guitar
  • Figure out music toy
  • Build stuff
  • Go for a walk
  • Ponder life

a little bit of the burn


Frankly I'm surprised it hasn't come earlier.

Is there a cure?
