AWESOME. I have been in Brisbane, Australia for the last 4 days. After 36 hours of travel on 3 different aircraft, you’d think I’d be some way towards tiredness. Even after the initial journey; arriving at 2am, I was back in action at 6am to take the friend I’m staying with to hospital with Appendicitis!
SLEEP is a funny thing that I have never been a fan of. Since my earliest days, I was always up at the crack of dawn.. be it to play American Football with my big bro before school when I was 5, or for my daily paper-round when I was 11. I’ve slept with my curtains open for as long as I can remember.
MAKE the most of every day. I can’t boast that I have, but early mornings - even hungover early mornings - have certainly helped. Even so, I have always held a grudge against the sleep fairy that makes you tired if you don’t get a good 7 hours in.
MY DREAMS have been realized. It seems jet-lag has led the way to me not only needing just 4 hours sleep per night - with maybe a 1 hour top-up mid-afternoon. That’s 2 whole hours less than usual! Is this for real? Has the warm Australian climate given me waking powers I didn’t before recognize? Or, am I just building a MASSIVE sleep-debt that will creep up on me when I least expect it?
BETTER check this absolute gem out - written by that living genius Timothy Ferriss.
THE THOUGHTs will come they said. I can tell life-blogging is a serious thing - even though life itself isn’t! So, where better a place to start than the beginning of the next chapter. You see, there have been a whole bunch of other chapters before now, most of them confusing, some hysterical, some worthy of being fly-swatted against a wall but, all sinking to the bottom of the ‘Past Sea’. We now look to the future.
SO WHAT is the book called?! ..The Ridiculous Life of James Econs?; ..Life Is Lunacy (by James Econs)? ..maybe, but what serious author has EVER come up with the title before writing the book!
I CAN honestly say that I have as much clue as to what this blog is about as you, the reader, do. The best part is, I can’t wait to see! The long and short of it is, I am on a massive adventure to find out what mega god-like force it takes to stop me from doing whatever the hell I want.
