Productivity, Planning, and Pleasant Surprises

People are most productive at the office first thing in the morning.  So they say.  I enjoy my breakfast and ease into my workday.  Well, now I do.  I haven't always.

The past year has been filled with so many derailing events that I don't remember what I'm like when I'm most productive.  I'm in crisis mode: all focus is on effectively managing the unexpected events as they come.  This keeps me from becoming overly stressed out.  Anyway, there are peaks and valleys, and even though it appears on paper as though my life is filled with valleys, I can't pretend that I'm not just the slightest bit optimistic about my plans for the future.

This post seems all over the place, I'm sure, the way that I seem so to many people around me right now.  But there is focus.  There are plans, goals, and targets being met. Rest assured that 'crisis mode' is not negative, and not an impediment to my attaining my dreams.

What gets me through times like this are the pleasant surprises.  Amidst the unmitigated circumstances that currently govern my thoughts and actions, there are yet the unexpected moments that make it all worthwhile, such as making new friends, having fun in ways that I didn't anticipate, and discovering new plans that were ever more exciting than the ones I already had.
