A time vampire, to be specific.
Sorry for not posting more often, but I have been drowning in a sea of work. And, like a drowning man being thrown a rope to safety, I have had an epiphany in the midst of all of this work. And that epiphany? Unsurprisingly, it's that I am overworked. Or, rather, I am being pulled in too many different directions. While being extremely busy was fun when I was younger, it's become a burden the older I've gotten. I'd like to spend MORE time with my family - not LESS. So ... how the hell do I fix this?
As you may have guessed, the chorus to "Bullet With Butterfly Wings" keeps swirling through my brain. Yeah, something's up. A safety valve needs to be released or a fuse is gonna blow.
It seems that I have reached a crossroads in my practice, just as I have reached THE crossroads in my life: I turn 50 next Thursday. And right around the time when I am thinking about what to do with Life After Fifty, I find that I am also thinking about what to do with the state of my practice. The problem is obvious: I've spread myself far too thin and I have to do something about it NOW before something disastrous occurs. And I think I know just what to do. In fact, I'm certain I have a most excellent solution.
