Thinking of ways to build this, this AE story.  Taking notes, making appointments, but still not producing as fast as I’d like.  I know, I know… patience.  Slow down.  I know that’s what you’re thinking.  And you should be.  Tenacity and temperament is a tough tightrope walk to work.  But I do.  I have to.  Keep writing, keep brainstorming till you get something.  Committing to staying in office, all day.  Brainstorm.  Keep a storming brain.  That’s how you find gems.

Wake earlier.  6-something doesn’t fucking cut it.  Even 5am is just barely acceptable if you want to get ahead in tasks, productivity, and life, success.  At least that’s what I’m finding.
