Well, this is a first. Suddenly I'm a day ahead of schedule instead of two or three days behind. I got so carried away with the work I was doing today that (a) I finished without remembering to stop and eat, and (2) I wrote a lot of checks that I can't even mail until Friday. That's what happens when you think you have to do more than you really have to do. So now what do I do tomorrow?

Don't worry. Something will come up.

But this brought me back to a time when I was always a day ahead, if not a week ahead. I used to be so much more driven to keep everything under control. If there was something to do, I stuck with it until it was done. If there was nothing to do, I created something that would make it easier to do something else, even if neither the something or the something else was a matter of any urgency.

That's not how I roll any more. I think I just got to a point where I'd done everything that excited me, and the rest of it had a harder time holding my interest. So now, mostly, I just do what has to be done. It's kind of refreshing when a day like this comes along and I get as involved in my work as I used to be on a routine basis. I don't get that rush often any more.
