So, I have a weird habit of taking on (or creating) a smaller project to break up a larger project. It means I basically do "work" as a "break" and is part of the reason I get a lot of various things done in a small amount of time. Many years ago I discovered that I don't so much need or want a "break", it's more that I need a change of subject. A mental flavor changer...* One such project I have right now is for a friend who is very gifted with the tough love and real world motivation. This project has had a very welcome side effect of being very motivating.
Now, I'm a self-starter, always have been, but we can all use some help. This has inspired me to get a little more organized. At the same time I'd been listening to James Altucher's The Choose Yourself Guide to Wealth on Audible (here's a free trial and two free audiobooks)... so it all kind of converged over the holiday weekend. I like that book because it seems to support some of my odd behaviors and life choices. That's nice for a change.
Anyway, after eating not one but TWO slices of my friend's gluten free (but not free of anything else) delicious peanut butter pie on Christmas, along with a whole lot of leg of lamb and smoked turkey, I really felt like I needed to get out and put those calories to work the next day. I also wanted to mess with my own head.
