555 Days Towards Level 9000: Day 88.
Time Awake: 8:06 a.m.
It’s raining today! The rain oscillates between periods of being monsoon-like and just downpouring. My hair is tied back because the frizziness is beyond help.
On days of rain, I become lethargic. I don’t know if there is a scientific explanation or it’s just me. But on days of rain, I don’t want to do anything.
I have work today, but have no interest in going. There are tasks to take care of at home, but I am unmotivated. Beyond eating Hungryman Breakfast, all I want to do is sit on the couch all day and watch the WWE Network.
But that’s not how Life works. There are things to be done, and the measure of an adult is doing those things anyway, even if we don’t want to.
Orison Swett Marden wrote about this in his book “An Iron Will.”
Marden quotes a Professor Huxley: “Perhaps the most valuable result of all education is the ability to make yourself do the thing you have to do when it ought to be done, whether you like it or not; it is the first lesson which ought to be learned, and, however early a man’s training begins, it is probably the last lesson which he learns thoroughly.”
I am still learning. But I am going to work today. I am getting things done at home beforehand. Eating Hungryman Breakfast. Posting this entry. Doing Life.
