I did however, go running again last night. It was an easy run, somwhere around 2.25 miles through town. I didn’t have a watch to time myself with, so I don’t know how fast I ran it in, but it probably isn’t an impressive time anyway. After running, I feel more on top of my game, which should be motivation enough for me to run in and of itself.

I’ve been tired lately. I try to compare my sleeping schedule now with schedules held in the past. Basically, I work from 7am till 8pm, which is nothing new. This means I need to be up from 6:30 till around 9pm. However, I stay up till around midnight or 1am some nights of the week and go to bed by 11pm other nights. This gives me anywhere from 5.5 to 7.5 hours. This is comparable to previously when I would only get 4-6 hours of sleep per night. However, I had a nice lull lasting several months where I would get just a bit over 8 hours of sleep per night. I’m wondering if my mind had gotten used to the idea of 8 hours of sleep and is now fighting a smaller sleeping schedule (which seems doubtful considering I had lulls like this before), or if I am truly doing that much more mental work that I will actually require the additional sleep. By maintaining a schedule that I had sucessfully held in the past, am I now depriving myself of now-essential sleep? Am I on the way to destruction? Do I have a chance to survive? Should I make my time?
I am currently going through a business relationship breakup. I won’t go into too many details, but basically it involves a friend of mine who I had planned to add as a business partner/owner. Things were going great, and I was planning on drawing up an ownership agreement for us (which needed to be done before December rolled around for tax purposes), when he suddenly declares that I am not doing my share of the work (we were both working in my store, acting as owners/partners before anything official was done), and had spoken with an attorney about taking the business from me. This shocked me. I had felt I could trust this person and had shook off skepticism from close friends of mine who didn’t like this person. I had stood up for his mannerisms and his attitude, and felt he would be an ideal partner. In the end, I have only myself to blame for putting trust where it doesn’t belong. usually consider myself good at understanding people, but here I failed at this.
I was am still am upset, however, I do see how this coming to a head now is a good thing. In less than two months, I would have had a contract in place, and him listed as an owner. Knowing what he seemed to be thinking and planning for a while now, I am glad it happened now instead of afterwards. Granted a contract would have protected the business, but him being a non-owner protects it even further.
Unfortunately, my reputation is going to take some abuse, as well as the repuatation of the business. However, it will remain intact, if somewhat poorer. I am now on the long hard road of rebuilding and fending off legal suits from this person who I had formerly trusted. Such is the way of the business world. :/

According an article, Gen-X is setup worse than any other generation for a financial crash. My favorite quote: “I had a college president say to me, ‘I don’t know how much longer I can pull this off because people will start to ask, Is it worth this much money to be that much smarter?’ “
