Sometimes I suck like a black hole in a bad mood

Look, I wasn’t entirely honest with you yesterday.

I do kinda hate Mondays.

Winter is the worst but sometimes we’ve just got to get on and do things.

But not because I hate my business (I do love my business), it’s because they’re so dreary. So mundane. Even when you’ve got something exciting to do, they’re still Mondayish. And the worst thing of all? Joe has to work, so even if I can go and do whatever I want in the week, I have to do it alone. Which is often fun, but not nearly as much fun as when Joe’s there.

Phew. Glad I got that off my chest, because really it’s pretty annoying when you get some smug git telling you how great Mondays are, isn’t it?

Yep. Occassionally I am an annoying smug git.

(The rest of what I said still stands, though.)

And while I’m in an offloading mood, here’s another thing: ever since Christmas  I’ve been struggling to get up early.

Which is driving me nuts.

I loathe, despise, and hate these short, dark days. I love winter, though, when it’s snowy and frosty and cold and clear and beautiful. I love crisp, sunny winter days. But these short dark days? They can do one.

I’m not gonna lie to you: I’m struggling. And it’s creating dissonance, because I’m a person who gets stuff done. Who sticks to her values and gets up early and is productive.

Except, for the past few weeks, I haven’t been.

So it’s time to reduce that dissonance and compromise. Getting up at 5am just ain’t gonna happen in the winter. So instead, I’ll get up at 6am. I’d rather hibernate and eat biscuits in bed, but that ain’t gonna happen either.

I’m better than that.

So anyway, I just wanted you to know that sometimes I suck like a black hole in a bad mood.

And now I’m going to stop justifying my suckiness and make some reasonable changes that mean I’m less angry with myself and more productive.

One thing hasn’t changed though: my commitment to people who read Business For Superheroes and to my private clients.

I’ve got some exciting shit coming up over the next few months.
