Sometimes I try to do too much. Last night I got home from a long day of playing with my daughter, and I had set out an ambitious agenda for how to spend my evening. I would practice for an hour and a half, pay all of our bills for the month, and do laundry. I was exhausted, and before long I checked the clock: it was 10pm and I had not started doing any work yet!
I’m a hard worker, and I push myself to accomplish things during every waking moment. But now I’m starting to discover that there are times that I am just too tired to do anything. Sometimes it is better to hang it up and go to sleep.
Hanging out with a five-year-old is extremely exhausting, and it can force you to work at a much slower pace!
