Work and then some

November 7, 2006

Have been busy as hell over the last few weeks. We’re getting really close to delivering a major milestone for one of our clients. It’s been such a gut wrenching whirlwind of highs and lows that I haven’t even realized how time has flown by.
S gently reminded me the other day that it had been over a month since I took a Sunday totally off. Yikes. I’m really turning into one of those workaholics.
Atleast the midweek beers at the blue joint opposite work happen once in a while. There’s only so far humans can go without a recharge.

Anyways, 3 more days and normalcy should settle in again. How long will the calm last? you’re guess is as good as mine.

Mind games. of blogging and self discipline.

Alright, I’m hoping this one will work. I’ve been thinking about this for a while now – Mental Discipline. Sounds profound, yes. But it’s me who is writing about it, so you know it can’t really be that profound. ah, one of life’s may little ironies.

So, here’s the conundrum. You know you could do with a little more mental discipline (heck, it’s sometimes like money). The thing is, how do you push the envelope? yes, there is the extreme method (“give up alcohol just to see if you can”, “become vegetarian” for precisely the same reason and ofcourse, the vintage “get up at 4:00 AM on Sunday mornings”). Yeah, the draconian route to better mental discipline. But you know, that’s not so elegant is it? how about something more agreeable. Like a 7 km run everymorning? sounds good, but its a bit strong for the average indolent twenty something. Ah, then there’s the killer. Blogging. Not just blogging, but regular blogging. Yes, regular coherent blogging (and I don’t mean those pseudo photo posts either). And that’s precisely what I’m going to begin to do. Everyday posts are probably a little bit difficult (you know, being the hardworking, efficiency obsessed, customer focused consultant) but that is certainly going to be the target.

Lets see how it goes.
