Well, my week was very unproductive. Until Friday, I didn’t do any work at all. For some reason, I had trouble waking up in the mornings. Normally I try to get up at 5:30AM, and if I get up late, it is still 6:30AM at the latest. I still have plenty of time to get ready in the morning. For some reason, I kept waking up after 7AM this past week. It wasn’t like I was staying up late, either. I went to bed early enough. I just had trouble waking up. And so the rest of my day was pretty messed up. It is interesting how much of a connection there is between waking up early and getting things done.

On the other hand, I did use this past week to catch up on magazines and other readings that I’ve let stack up. My inbox is down to manageable again.

Friday I was tempted to lie down and relax after coming home from my day job, but Uhfgood from #gamedevelopers suggested I work on OE’. I figured I would put in about 30 minutes at the most. Once again, starting something allowed me to keep the momentum going. I ended up working almost two hours. Once again, #gamedevelopers helped keep game development at the front of my mind.
