Most days I wake up around 5:00 or 5:30 a.m. with grand plans to tackle the day and take control and take a walk and eat a power breakfast and do some chores and do some writing and read some headlines and do some sit-ups and map-out my entire day and . . .
And then sometimes, like today, I hit the kitchen at 5:15 a.m., make myself an incredible cuppa coffee via my Aeropress, and then sit and scroll through some Facebook, read some articles about being awesome that I’ve bookmarked to Instapaper (reading about being awesome does NOT equal being awesome …I know that), and listen to the birds chirping outside and just chilllllllll.
I’m OK with that. I have to be. Otherwise, I’d have missed the video below (that I watched twice).
Many of us are lucky enough to have a 3-day weekend on the horizon which means we have a short work week and we’re going to get outta town, do something fun, watch things explode in the sky, drink some beer, laugh with friends around a campfire, go to a carnival or festival, and …well …turn our brains off.
Do millionaires with multiple companies and blogs and books and speaking engagements ever do that? Do they ever wake-up and forego their power routine and instead watch cat videos on YouTube.
Probably not. And maybe that’s why I’m not one of those guys. But that’s OK. I watched awesome movie dance scenes and am feeling content.
