When my brain starts going at 3am, and wakes me up, I might try to fall back asleep.

But, when I notice the ideas are coming easily, and then disappearing, I might get up and write some down.


It's dark in the house. I get up and move differently than normal. I might make some slow rhythmic dance moves to try and get the blood flowing in the different parts of my body. Think 'african tribal dance in super-slo-mo'. Think moving to a beat in silence. Imagine experiencing the feels of each body part as they talk to each other in coordinate movement; through the house in the dark; eyes closed.


This morning, I was thinking about what it's like working for a company that's not my own. How do you spend your time? Do you have a proper incentive to do as much as you can to make it successful? Is the leadership experienced enough to know what they're doing? Who's driving the bus? How do they keep score? Does the whole team get together in a room every week and go over the plays from the previous week with the goal of understanding mistakes made and opportunities that could be targeted?


How do people who have created their own companies operate differently than those who have only ever worked as part of a team? Are there any actual rules to follow or are there simply basic guidelines? Be a good human. Use your best judgement. Improve the lives of others.
