I can’t really explain why I’m up at 3 in the morning. I think it has something to do with wanting to put new strings on my guitar and then finding that I had left a peg at the church and since I was at the church anyway, going ahead and setting up the room for Wednesday and then after stringing the guitar wanting to actually play it, but anyway, I am up at 3 AM and I have a couple of things to say, but since it is 3 AM they probably won’t make much sense, but of course I will try anyway.
I only have a few "creative points" in any given day. I have a huge desire to use them, but once they are used up they can’t be reused and many time they won’t come back until the next day. I can use these points to come up with a new object lesson, or to design a new logo. I can use these point to actually write something that matters or play guitar or figure out how best to defeat the flying demon chick in Ninja Gaiden. But each day I only have a few points and once they are spent I can’t be creative anymore.
Also, I don’t do well going to be with points not spent. It is sort of a creative point burn that won’t let me sleep until I have done something to at least make me feel like I made something new. I can’t really explain myself any better than that right now, though because I used up my creative points today playing guitar.
And that brings me to my point. I have learned that I have to budget these points in order to get things accomplished. If I’m not careful I will spend an hour playing guitar and having a great time, and while I still have plenty of time to come up with a new youth lesson I often won’t have the creative points left to really make something that works.
I know this is strange, but this is who I am.
