No Sleep Til Tetrad! Productivity When You Least Expect It!
I knew I was going to have a long weekend ...
...trying to truly fix some site situations and also to wrap my head around some stuff that I have had a hard time getting sorted.
Then, I make some leaps and bounds and I'm feeling fairly good and entirely brain fried and exhausted so I close my eyes at midnight ( I usually stretch and then just close my eyes and meditate before actual sleep.)
Then it begins...the thoughts start rushing in like Road Runner taunting Wylie..... on crack!
Usually, I cane meditate against all odds. I was fortunate enough to have life coach services when I was a student in college not too long ago. I devised a plan or a routine rather every night before bed. It's been a warm bath, yoga stretch, meditation combo that's worked pretty well for the most part.
Usually, I get all snuggled in ready for my sleepy time.
Last night though, the coming lunar eclipse was pulling my mind in every direction. I had a similar night like this that I updated a blog here with not to long ago. You can read about that craziness here https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/fyre/blog/why-are-...
I say similar not because I was awake all night in a whirlpool of thoughts but, because of the good stuff that came from those thoughts, I actually came up with some answers....and, hopefully some solutions.
I have a different way of learning new things. Repetition is a huge part of of my learning style and I'm getting better everyday by being here and interacting with all of you as I progress with my Online Entrepreneur Training.
In college (I went to college at age 36) it was a huge process to find a way of organized study that worked for me. I was also lucky enough,after some suggested testing, to have access to tools and mentors that specialized in people with learning disabilities
One of the tools I got to use was a program called Dragon Naturally Speaking by Nuance (or, Dragon Dictate for my purposes.) It was pretty cool because I could close my eyes essentially and write an entire paper. I have a vastly vivid imagination so this method is extremely effective for me at times when I feel overloaded and insanely overwhelmed. This particular software has a pretty heavy price tag on it for me but, I think going forward it's a great goal for me to have it for my Laptop and for when I'm mobile.
So, another sleepless night doesn't make me feel horrible when the thoughts are at least productive,pleasant and plenty.
As my mother would say....
..."You can't shake a stick at that!"
If everything I've read about the aforementioned software is true, it has been advancing pretty quickly and, has an accuracy level that would suit me oh, so well.
If I could take a walk and write at the same time ...I'd be ....well, Over The Moon!
