Hereís a tip. If you want to get some work done on a Sunday, donít spread it around. As soon as the word gets out that youíre conscious, the demands start pouring in. ďAs long as youíre working,Ē they say, and after that it might not stop until itís dark. At least, thatís what happened to me today.
It was coming from two directions, too. Thatís why Iím amazed that I finished more than half of the work I actually intended to do when I started. With all the distractions and interruptions, it wouldnít have seemed possible to get close to the bottom of the pile of invoices I wanted to pay. But I did.
Everything anyone asks me to do is important. To someone. For some reason. Itís awfully hard to put up any kind of argument when you know that people need your help. I did have one conversation that started with me saying, ďAre you sure I need to...Ē And whaddaya know? I didnít need to do that exact thing. Surprise, surprise.
