Woohoo! I just accomplished everything on my to-do list tonight.

Of course, there were only three things on my to-do list. But they were all fairly significant:

  1. Call back a friend of mine. We haven’t talked in a while, and we’d missed each other at a meeting on Saturday, so I was afraid there’d be some bad blood or something. But he was very apologetic, and I had a great time talking.
  2. Write a thank-you note for the bull riding on Saturday. Tom Peters says that, when it comes to building relationships, the best return-on-investment activity is sending thank-you notes. And I so enjoyed watching those cowboys risk their necks that I wanted to thank them. So that was done.
  3. Write more on Giant Armors (my young adult novel). That was really the hard bit; it’s amazing how much Resistance can push back at you when work needs to get done on a project like this. But I muscled through it and wrote another six hundred words or so. I’ve added some nice character texture. So that feels good.

So, I feel good. I set myself a couple of do-able tasks, and I did them.

Wasn’t so hard, now was it?

7:32 p.m.

I may come back and write a nice, long post about something in particular—I have quite a lot to write about, actually—but I just finished reading Saalon‘s post about Buffy. As in, I started reading and just couldn’t stop until I was done. I held my breath, realizing somewhere deep that I was reading something really good, something from the heart.

I want to go watch Buffy now.

Life Is A Highway…

My second viewing of Cars was exactly as enjoyable as the first.

A rare thing, really.

Comments:

Stephen You didn’t see Buffy? Great show. Erin introduced me to it, actually.
Brent Well, I’ve seen maybe fifteen episodes all the way through, and bits and pieces of others. I certainly haven’t seen a significant percentage.
