I keep waking up about 2:30 AM. This is the second or third morning this week that I’ve done that.
At first I would try to will myself back to sleep. But that never works. My mind is already awake and doing gymnastics. This morning it was trying to work out how to get Internet links on the sidebar of this blog.
Rather than fight it, I got up and went to my (home) office where I began working on the link problem. The nice thing about such interludes is that I am really focused and undistracted. The bad side is that I have to go to work in the morning reasonably alert.
I think I know what causes this sleeplessness–taking a nap during the news. I’ve got to quit that, but then I’ll sleep through the night and miss my productive work sessions. Too bad the world doesn’t go to work at 3 AM.
