This is going to be short today, folks. It’s my 57th birthday and I’m going to be taking the day off. I’m grateful to be alive, grateful to have been born, and grateful for this life. It has been one hell of a journey so far.
I’m a dabbler. I enjoy doing lots of things during the day and love the variety of tasks I set for myself. My motivation is provided by the variety. A variety of books to read (I read multiple books simultaneously), a variety of classes to take, going to the gym, running errands, working on my book, and all the rest.
If you are bored or overwhelmed, adjust your schedule. Either add more things to your day or take some away. Be flexible and monitor yourself at the end of the day. If I consistently finish all of my stuff too quickly and find myself getting antsy, I add some stuff to my calendar for the next day. If I can’t finish all the things I have scheduled or feeling resistance to my daily rituals, I back some things off.
Ok, folks. Here’s my schedule for the week:
Work on Book Daily
Code Daily (Computer Science Course Codecademy)
Exercise Daily (See my Workout Routine post for the week)
Learn daily (classes in Algebra, American History, Autism Spectrum Disorder)
I hope all of you have a terrific week! Remember, take time to monitor how you feel about your daily routines. Be flexible and be prepared to adjust, keeping in mind your core priorities.
This week’s Wisdom Wednesday is about the wisdom in taking care of yourself. I found this article on Pocket. If you haven’t explored Pocket yet, check it out here.

Indulge in a warm drink
Food is fun
Responsibility is your freedom

You’ll have to read the article to get the details, but I promise, the article is a short, quick read and some of this lady’s suggestions are awesome! We all need to take better care of ourselves, so eat great food, watch movies, explore, relax and most importantly–Dork out!
