Confession time: I have insomnia.
Since I started this initiative I’ve been waking up at 3am. Arguably, I’m juggling a lot, but it’s not stress that has disrupted my sleep pattern.
It’s a desire to accomplish MORE. Not do more, accomplish more. I want to get to the finish line of more things FASTER.
So, some days like today, after praying, I hit the floor running. Other days, I’m wondering if God is trying to tell me something. I pull out my Bible and read.
Today, I got an epiphany: deal with it.
Yup, I’ve been so busy trying to ignore my insomnia and the cause that I’ve actually created a cycle.
Wake up 3am, hit the floor, work until noon. Mentally drained, read, try unsuccessfully to nap, cook, clean, get second wind, more mental work, bed around midnight.
Am I crazy or just DRIVEN to GRIND?
While I may be a little of both, neither are why I have insomnia.
I’m unbalanced and a liar.
Yup, I’ve been putting my goals up here, but, I’ve been holding back. It’s only PARTIALLY what I want to accomplish each day and my mind knows it! So even though I accomplish most of what I put up here, there are other things, you know, the day to day that gets trivialized.
I have insomnia because I let the day to day get in the way of my day today.
Now, isn’t THAT ironic?
Therefore, my goal for today is to come up with a plan for balance.
Without that balance, we all leave ourselves open to our own unintended sabotage of the very things we want.
Make it a great day and deal with the day to day so that it no longer gets in the way your day today or any other day!
