For years, while working for corporations, I had to get up every morning, hit the ground running, and fight the rush hour traffic to get to an office where my time was not my own – ever…
For the last two years, I’ve managed my own companies, from my home office, where I set the rules and boundaries, and the hours that I work. It’s been sheer bliss!
Now I can work till the wee hours (and often I’m up till 2:00 or 3:00 am), and sleep as late as I need to.
And when I rise, still behind closed blinds, with bleary eyes, the first thing I do is make my way to the coffee pot.
Then, for as long as that one large mug of coffee lasts, whether it’s five minutes or fifteen, I treat myself to lots of games of solitaire.
It doesn’t matter if I win or lose, or if I decide to start over in the middle of a game, just because I don’t like the way the cards laid out.
It only matters that it’s ME time, in the quiet, easing my brain gently into gear. It’s my favorite time of the day.
And today, without really trying, I set a new Personal Best Time of 1 minute 37 seconds!
What’s your best time?
And how do you start your day?.
