Sometimes you roll out of bed later than you planned to, or you just can’t do your Work right away. No matter. Go have your breakfast, get your hair done, meet friends for coffee, read the paper. But make a definite plan for when it gets done. Reschedule the meeting with your boss. Write the email another time. redesign the software later.
In the interstitial moment between one thing in your day and the next, get the Work done. It won’t wait for you, you must run like a cheetah on the open savanna or there will be no dinner tonight. Casey has to swing sometime. The bat can’t always rest on the shoulder. The dance will go on without you, even if you choose not to show up.
I’m having dinner with friends tonight, and then we’re going contra dancing. I did my taiji and five golden coins under a noon day sun beside a sparking, burbling river. It’s a good day
