Act 125

Find your momentum killer.

Mine is TV after school. Most days, I pick up my kids and head home to finish the day’s work. But more often than I care to admit, I settle in to watch some news – Power and Politics and Lang and O’Leary are my poison. And I just never get enough done. Next thing I know, it’s dinner and bed time.

So this week I will forgo the TV shows and resist the comfy chair. I find if I work through that first 1/2 hour, I get a second wind. More gets done. Sleep comes easier. The week is more productive.

At least I’ll try – but if there’s breaking news on Parliament Hill, I might not be able to resist…

Act 33

Don’t confuse excess with success.

Some TV shows shouldn’t be watched. Like the housewives-of-any-county or the my-great-big-any-kind-event.

These shows do nothing but add to the confusion between excess and success and for every millionaire housewife struggling to decide on marble vs granite or diamonds vs emeralds, there are literally millions of housewives who work hard and do their best to figure out how to make ends meet, myself among them.

Bums me out. I suppose my Saturday morning is better spent on pinterest or facebook seeing what the real world is up to.

Sigh.
