After six hours of very interrupted sleep, starting this morning wasn’t the easiest.

But I had a big event to run as soon as I got into the office, so that was all the motivation I needed to get out of bed and get the day started.

Unfortunately, I arrived to an in-box of absolute shit, which really put a dent in my enthusiasm. I can’t go into details, but it was not the news I wanted to read at 0830 in the morning just before running a webinar.

Just hours later, I was able to file this away under “it’s a you problem, not a me problem” and smiled with delight as I got two excellent feedback emails from clients.

I don’t want to be at the emotional mercy of electronic messages, but sometimes it’s hard not to feel what email conveys. And ruminate on what might have been. And I check email sparingly through the day and never at nights or weekends. I can only imagine what it’s like for people who basically live in their in-box all day.

So, after a few cups of delicious coffee to activate my brain, I’ve been quite productive, solved a couple of administrative problems, and now I’m all ready for a couple of client sessions this afternoon.

I’ve had all the emotions, but I’m settling into quiet confidence, mixed with a good dose of “Oh my god, my brain is exhausted”.

I can live with that.
