Haha, interesting how I'm now measuring productivity by how little I blog rather than how much I do.
No post since January, so it must mean I'm getting better at focusing.
I'm reading a fascinating book about willpower called.. well... WillPower (Rediscovering the Greatest Human Strength). It explains a whole lot about how we consider a lack of willpower a character flaw, when really it is ruled by physiology rather than psychology. the book explains how we have a set amount of daily willpower within us and all the ways we unconsciously deplete it. I'm not saying any more, you have to read the book. It is truly altering the way I look at work ethic, dieting, effort versus laziness, motivation etc..
For example, I have postponed exercising. I've been traveling too much, ten day out of the month, and it's taking every bit of will power I have not to be distracted out of my writing schedule. So I'm giving myself a break about my decision to start exercising daily. I'm only human.
A fat human.
A fat human riding a wonderful, creative wave and hurrying to record it all before that bubble bursts.
How does the saying goes: I'll rest when I die. Well in my case I'll exercise when the muse turns her back on me.
Okay, now for a few images i've been collecting:
