Take what the defense gives you

On The 4 Hour Struggle

Sometimes, we aren't at our best. For whatever reason. Tired, distracted by fantasy football, errands, eating junkfood, a feeling of laziness. 

I usually struggle so much on these days not because of lower production. I have difficulty handling the stress caused by knowing that I didn't make much progress. Negative thoughts creep in like: "I'm not cut out fon this" and "my life is wasting away". 

Today, I am fasting on coca tea. It's lunch time, and getting kind of tough. Strong cravings for food. Having done this before, tonight will be the real test.

I may not make a ton of progress this afternoon. Maybe just walking and reading. Tangible work is limited to a solid hour and a half of work this AM. Tomorrow I will be better.

So I'll take it. I am against a strong defense (resistance) today. The 49ers D. And my franchise left tackle isn't playing. After this post, I am going to shut down and know that I gained a few yards today. And it's okay. 

Why The New Kindle is a Must-Have for Travelers

On Tynan

There are three items I own which I'll always upgrade when a significant upgrade exists: my computer, my camera, and my Kindle. Yesterday I got my new Kindle, the fourth generation one that was just released. Before I talk about this specific Kindle, I want to address some general points about the Kindle.


Some people balk at the $189 price tag of the newest 3G Kindle (which is the only one to buy, by the way). It's expensive, but only if you consider it a drop in replacement for books. I consider it $200 to ensure that I read at least 10X more than I used to.
