Yes, it has people busier. More people doing things means heavier workloads, but we're willing to work it out as long as they work well in advance of deadlines. I think that's the main thing: be mindful of when things are due and how much time you have to work with, and pursue these goals in a balanced, motivated manner. As we saw during spring break, chaos and madness lead only to perpetuate themselves, and lead to confusion and greater mess instead of achievement.
In fact, this "super motivation" in the air has spread to infect even me! I've completed rewrites on two books of The Earthside Trilogy, and hope to get the third book done and have a good, solid second draft by the end of June, and a third, revised draft before my work meeting this fall. Rick and I are also plugging along with our diet and T25 exercise program, and are happy to see results, both through losing weight and feeling better and more energetic. And the house is clean, organized, and well stocked, with chores and errands done and ready for a day of rest tomorrow, and to tackle a brand new week on Monday.
It feels good to have that inner motivation going, doesn't it? There's nothing like it, or the feeling of achievement once you see the fruits of your labor in success and an organized, happy life. Keep it up, everybody! Let's make this a great summer through achievement, success, and progress. Fun isn't just in idleness. You can enjoy your journey to greater things, as well - so take advantage of the time and the season, and let's see how much we can make of it!
That's all today. Take care, and have a wonderful weekend.
