Some days you should just stay in bed and not get out at all. I woke up at my usual 3 am and realized that while I had long list of todo’s I really didn’t feel like working today. It took an enormous effort to head back to bed at 4 am and not feel guilty but that is what I did. After a late start for the day, I was done by about 1 pm in the afternoon. It felt odd heading back home while it was still daylight so I picked up book of Eli on my way home and shamelessly watched it with the curtains drawn.
After 18 brutal months and especially long April and May, you would have trouble recognizing me with my work ethic these days. But that is what burnout does, even to grown men.
