It takes time to make a ritual become natural; to create a routine that works for you.

I find a solid but moderately flexible routine makes me more productive. In fact it's not just "more" productive, but vastly more productive.

I find it very difficult to keep it or get back into it and also zestfully pursue that whole sucking the marrow out of life - which is to say, living to the fullest.

Like many things, it's a balancing act.

Why do I write about this? Who knows. It's time to get some Zzzzzzs and thought I'd post something.

Last note. GaryCon VI was awesome. There were some bumps with the resort and such but the convention was spectacular.

Chris Clark, Rob Kuntz, Frank Mentzer, Allan Grohe, Jon Hershberger, Larry Wickman, Jim Ward, and especially Jenny Guay made it one of the most memorable times of my life. So many others contributed as well, however those listed left the largest impact.
