Every Monday morning my computer runs a pretty beefy scan. It takes 3-4 hours. While it’s running, everything else I try to do on my computer slows down. Editing that video? Working with my usual number of tabs open? Designing that new ad? Instead of moving quickly and efficiently, the computer hangs…it freezes for a few seconds then a few more…it struggles.
That’s my internal CPU right now.
For the last three months and especially the last two weeks, my brain has been running scan after scan to make sense of everything that’s happening.
Every time I sit down to write a post – or do any work for that matter – those questions (and many more) are running in the background.
So the other day many of you saw this in your inbox.
An empty email. No new posts. No clever bits of resort marketing. No ideas of what you could be doing.
I’m just writing this note quickly to apologize, but also ask for some patience. I love writing these posts and I’ve got some good ones coming together again now, but some days I’ll just need to go for that walk with my kids or use whatever creativity I have on other things.
More than ever, thanks for your support all these years.
