Perhaps some of you are like me, and harbor a vicious spark of anger deep within your soul. Rather than let it consume me from the inside out, I’ve decided to channel it; I’ve decided to wage war on the shortcomings that hold me back from accomplishing my goals. If rush hour eats into writing time, I will wake up early, beat traffic, go to a diner close to work, and knock out word count. If my energy levels suffer from dietary imbalances, I will condition my mind and digestion to accept healthier fare. If I fail to get results, I will examine the evidence, reassess, then re-aggress.
When I put function first, there’s no reason to give up and curse my environment, not until I’ve capitalized on every vantage I possibly can.
