Beat The Clock- Hard Decisions Edition

Music sets the mood. I Am A Man by the Spencer Davis Group is playing in the background and I am trying to clear my head so that I can do the work that needs to be done.

I am on deadline in multiple areas and places.

Got six articles that are due within the next few hours and day. Got hard decisions to make about life, career and kids. Got chaos and clutter swirling around me and I feel like I am both master and slave to it all.

The music is moving me and I am starting to dance in my seat a bit. Probably look ridiculous to everyone else but in my mind’s eye I am cool, slick and in control. Confidence is building that I am going to figure the out the right answers to these questions but I admit to being concerned.

Sometimes there are no road maps to follow and all you do is blaze a trail. I am good with that for me, used to it but I am cautious about it with the kids. Don’t want to wrap them in invisible bubble wrap because you can’t and I won’t cripple them. They need to learn to roll with it, but I am dad and I wonder.

Six articles, what am I insane? Can I meet the challenge of time and quality? Can I get it done. Yeah, I will becuase I don’t give myself any other options.
This SOC post is a warm up. It is me stretching out and finding my rhythm so that I can do what needs to be done.
