Editing WTF today. Not much to say there.
I did have the thought yesterday that I need to look at my life and really analyze how I’m filling my time. If I really want to be out traveling, I need to have most of my time free, and somehow, most of my time is not free lately. This means, streamlining the podcast production into nothing more than a 4 hour activity. In fact, none of my big jobs should take more than 4 hours: two cups of coffee and time between meals in a coffee shop. That’s a sustainable format. WTF is about a 4 hour job. Let’s see if I can get it down to 3. The podcast has spread out into a 5+ hour affair, let’s do another one and see if I can get the whole of the work down to 3 hours. No jobs over 4 hours. That’s a portable workflow.
I’m not convinced that drinking is bad for me.
A few drinks in, I hit this real sweet flow state of creativity and action. I think it’s good medicine.
When I go back to MD/DE/PA, I won’t be visited by the old version of me, because I AM HIM.
And then it hit me:
Just as I give other men deference and respect,
I should give myself deference and respect, because I am a hundred born, lived, and died men.
And a few women.
And a dog.
