I'm writing a bit backwards this morning, just to see how it feels. My normal morning routine is this:
Get up, weigh myself, head to the kitchen.
Drink some water, empty the dishwasher, make my coffee.
Meditate a little, write a page in my notebook, move my body a bit.
Refill my coffee cup, read a little, check email and Facebook.
(Except on Tuesdays--after "read a little", I write my Slice.)
Get ready for work.
Today, for some reason, I decided to write this Slice right after "meditate a little".
What have I discovered?
It's much harder to write without prepping thoughts by hand first.
It's much harder to write without the appropriate amount of coffee on board.
It's much harder to write without having moved my body, getting blood flowing a bit faster through my brain.
I still have to write a page, move my body, refill my cup, read, check email and Facebook...and go to work.
Next week, I will be caffeinated, limber, and prepped before Slicing. Some routines just aren't meant to be changed.
