Yesterday, I struggled to catch up with my work. All week long, I worked diligently. I pushed to get projects accomplished despite countless interruptions, setbacks, and miscommunications. No matter how hard or how late I worked, I felt like I was always a day behind schedule. It wasn’t my fault. We rescheduled my standing Friday meeting for Thursday afternoon, and it was a mad dash to have everything ready. As a result, all day yesterday, I operated under the delusion that it was Friday. What a cruel trick the mind can play on us. You can’t imagine how distraught I felt when I realized yesterday would repeat itself today.
The silver lining to this awful situation is I have already completed my Friday dose of 9 to 5 work. With a few minor responsibilities first thing in the morning, my day is clear. I plan to shut my door, hide behind the guise of business as usual, and devote my well-deserved, hard-won reprieve towards pursuing my agenda. Shh, don’t tell anyone. Okay?
I always remember my number one writing priority. My core habits are strong, and writing a little every day is my secret weapon. Yesterday, I wrote 501 words.
Did you write yesterday?
Keep on writing.
