Musings of an Introvert

Thoughts, ideas, and lessons learned, from a guy who just wants to write.

In about five months I will become a Dad. I'm super excited for it, although it seems like some folks are trying to scare me and convince me that my life will never be the same – and that that's not necessarily a good thing. I say bring it on. I'm looking forward to having a little guy around, and I hope it does turn my life upside down!

This morning I wrote out five questions for myself. It was one of the best things I've done for my mind in a while. In a world where I'm generally just asked for output or quick answers, thinking about stuff for a while and finding answers for myself was excellent. These five questions move me one step forward, and every step is a win!

It was super nice to spend a day alone today with zero pressing issues. I was much more relaxed after wifey got home from work (she works all weekend), and we had a great little evening. This is how days are supposed to be, I'm pretty sure.

I started reading a book called Essentialism by Greg McKeown the other day. Right now it's helping me put into perspective what is important from a professional standpoint. I already know what is important in the other areas of my life (as you'd know if you've been reading the nonsense I've been posting for the past month and a bit). So far, it's pretty cool. I'll probably write up a review once I'm finished – unless it takes a turn for the worse.

It would appear that first thing in the morning is a great time to start work for me. I don't feel like working out is the best use of my time. Maybe, once I have less on my plate, I will take that time to work my body. As it stands, I swapped out early morning exercise for after dinner exercise. Works for me.

Some people say that developing a routine doesn't make or break your life. I feel like that may be true. I also feel like it couldn't hurt. I need to start doing something to help make myself feel better. Can't help others if I can't help myself, after all!

I've spent the past few weeks toiling – for that is the best word for it – extra hard. Today I literally could not.

I don't like feeling as though I've just put another week behind me. I want to feel like I've done something to create positive change in the world.
