365 Days of Living the Dale Carnegie Principles
Day 107. Monday, July 11, 2011
I had a different blog planned for today.
But as I was driving home—I felt my system shutting down. You know that feeling when your head just wants to crash on a pillow? That was me.
I made it home. I ate more than usual… 4 burritos… and a 1/3 of a Hershey bar. I didn’t feel stuffed. I felt a bit better. Just physically drained.
I think the moral of this very short blog—rest before you get tired… otherwise your system will find a way to shut down for you. My head and shoulders are aching. My eyes sockets hurt.
I called a friend asking him if I was dying. He said I was just tired and need to go to bed. I argued back—I’m baking brownies. And I haven’t done my blog.
He said shut everything off and go to bed now.
I negotiated with him saying how about I go to sleep at 11 pm.
The Dale Carnegie principle I remain reluctant to use is from How to Stop Worrying and Start Living:
Rest before you get tired.
Grumble. Admittedly I am not superwoman. I am not a robot either. The stress of geckos, a home inspection by the exterminator on Tuesday, chaos at work and my bazaar late night schedule of writing blogs is catching up to me. Learn from me—rest before you get tired—because the feeling I am experiencing at the moment just isn’t worth it.
And an interesting side note— it’s best not to bake when you are tired. My brownies did not turn out this evening. 😉
Good night everyone. Grumble. If there are typos… blame “Superman.”
