Nine hours yesterday. Over seventy for the week. I’ve found my groove and learned some secrets. Mostly, it’s about simply deciding that nothing will stop me from being productive. And it’s about diving in early, before the brain has time to get all worried about the bullshit.

It’s removing myself from the noise. Or transcending the noise. Or getting pissed about the noise, and using that anger in the work. And it’s a constant decision: I can work in noisy conditions. I MUST work in noisy conditions, for it’s a noisy world, and if I wait for peace and quiet to work, I’ll never work, or, at best, I’ll rarely work.
