Hello, Monday. I've been thinking about disconnection lately.
Back in December, I spent the better part of two days in my car as I drove from Florida back to Virginia. To make good use of the time, I downloaded about a bajillion podcasts to my phone before I left and proceeded to catch up on as many as possible. Over the course of two days, I caught up on something like 50+ podcast episodes thanks to short episodes and 1.5x listening speed.

Hello, Monday. I've been doing some thinking on discipline.
We're just a couple of weeks into this new year and, according to statistics, most people who made resolutions or goals will abandon them in about four weeks time. At least I think that's the stat — middle of February or so, and our resolve and willpower fails and we go back to old habits until January 1st rolls around again and we resolve anew.

Hello Monday. I went to see a movie on Friday.
You've probably heard of it — the one that depicts the life of P.T. Barnum and how his circus began. Critics have heralded it as spectacular entertainment, a must-see, and more. My official opinion is, if you can put aside the ethics of the circus for a couple of hours, it is a movie with wonderful performances, beautiful cinematography, phenomenal choreography, and a soundtrack I am sure to have on repeat for the next several weeks at least.
On Pivoting and Too Much of a Good Thing
Hello, Monday. Welcome to 2018.
It probably just adds to my organizational nerd status, but I am far more excited than is probably normal about the fact that today, the first day of 2018, is a Monday. Because it's not just a new day or a new week, but a new month and a new year. It's like the ultimate fresh start.
At this point in my life, I don't think anyone is surprised when I start a new project or venture.
They might shake their head, laugh a little bit, and once again question my level of sanity or common sense, but they're no longer surprised because that's how I've always rolled — a ton of different things going at any given time, a weird mash up of perfectly organized and a total hot mess.
