What do I do each day?
Asking myself that questions helps prevent me from taking on too much. I have a busy life, but it becomes so routine, I almost forget about it. It’s those times I reflect on my day-to-day life which reminds me of the things I do and gives me a sense of satisfaction when I wonder if I measure up.
Because what does that mean anyway? Who set the standard? Why are some people content with just being, taking up space and being quiet, when others are anxious and always looking for the next thing? I am much better with downtime, but also the greedy “you could do more” monster gets in my ear and I look for ways to do more.
It’s quite crazy because really that’s all it is, greed. Why do you have to do more? Why do you need to make more money? What is the real standard of living that you need? I’ve done a lot of thinking about the bare essentials I need to survive, and when I write it down, it’s not that much. All the other things do make me feel comfortable, but that is one zone I don’t want to be in too long.
Anyway, this is my day in the life, complete with food porn.
4:30AM – wake up and run
6:30AM – get to work and eat breakfast
4:30PM – walk home from the gym, shower, watch TV with Mark
6:00PM – eat dinner and read, work on the blog
Anyone else a headlamp, early morning runner?
