So tired, eyes hurt but can't sleep... Racing thoughts of tomorrow's to-do list and today's un-finished list... I think it may be time to google "where is my personal assistant?"
When you're a small business, keeping a close eye on overhead costs... in other words, can't afford that personal assistant... and you can't sleep because there's too much to do but you're too tired to read yet another email or twitter post or facebook comment... what do you do??
Forge on, or rather - 'keep on, keepin' on' as my Editor friend Annie from Sass Magazine often says!
Is it a common business owner practice to keep the pen and paper by your bedside and wake up 6x a night to write down the thoughts that continue to race, hoping if you get them on paper they will leave the brain empty in order to do nothing other than count sheep, with even higher hopes of drifting off to dreamland... or would this be considered 'uncommon?' Business overload or insanity? that is the question...
We are told to enjoy the journey but at times, I find myself wishing for that moment in time... just after you have pushed the send button and released the latest issue off to the printing press... when you take that deep breathe and all is silent. In that moment, with that deep breathe, you feel PROUD, ACCOMPLISHED, SUCCESSFUL, REDEEMED... the 'it was all worth it' feeling... It is that moment I am craving right now... too bad its about 2 months away.
So with tired eyes and racing thoughts, I will turn my focus to something completely unrelated... like late night Criminal Minds re-runs... hoping to drift...
