Routine is Helping

Wednesday, March 08, 2017

Routine is helping. And getting up earlier would help more.

I can generally be sure of getting three blocks of work done: professional study, French study, and gym (surrogate for climbing hills). Also getting home admin generally fits in. This all worked yesterday when, because of a medical appointment (all is well) and the two hours of associated transportation time, my morning routine was out the window. But focusing on the big blocks meant I had time to get those big things done. Routine is helping. And the important stuff is being addressed first.

Other important stuff? Well I finished watching season six of Game of Thrones last night. Maybe that's not so important, but it's nice to have time in the evening for that. I see the Game of Thrones writers have set up for a major collision of strong characters next season. I'll watch the library or Amazon or something to see when I can watch season seven. Now my entertainment attention will switch to season two of Mr. Robot.

After the televised mayhem I generally begin to wind up for bed around 10PM, turn off the computer around then, brush teeth and such, and then read in bed for a bit, until I can't finish some paragraph, turn off the light, and pretty much go to sleep quickly. In the morning I first am aware I've woken somewhere around 6:15, but often permit myself to sleep further to 6:30 or 6:45. No alarm - just glancing at the clock display. It would be good for my routine of dressing for the day, scanning the news, and maybe doing a crossword puzzle after breakfast, to get up earlier than later. So maybe that's the next effort. Years ago I used to get up at 4:30 so that I could participate in east coast telephone calls from a California location at 6 AM (9 AM for the east coast guys). I think I can get up at 6 again.
