CALVIN: You can't just turn on creativity like a faucet. You have to be in the right mood.
HOBBES: What mood is that?
CALVIN: Last minute panic.
-- Bill Watterson (b. 1958), Calvin & Hobbes
Everyone I know is suffering from life burnout right now. Like most professionals and entrepreneurs, we are overwhelmed with not knowing our limits. Maybe because limits seem negotiable - we continue to push through them, right?
Sometimes you have to step back from your enthusiasm and start "budgeting" your time and energy as you would your financial resources.
Before I head out for a weekend of painting the new abode, (anyone up for a painting party - beer and pizza included?) I will leave you with this energetic mix for your auditory pleasure.
Have a great weekend!
