Emergency. Ugh.

I overslept the weekly Community call. Good for me, I caught up on sleep.
My son forgot to turn the furnace on after cleaning, so first thing in the morning I started the fire.
I formatted and published a Quora answer to a big question with 8,000 followers. I wanted to check what’s better: to answer many small questions or a few big ones.
On a train to work I wrote some bonuses for #12 book (940 words).
I was eager to get my first 1,000 views on Quora, so I wrote 2 short answers (160 words) and published them. Then I found a question with 30 answers and 87 followers in Fitness category (314,000 followers). My recent GMP article was an ideal response to it, so I shared it. 60 views in 10 minutes.
I wasted hours observing how my views stats are climbing on Quora. My answer landed 6th or 7th from the top, being ahead of 550 others. It got to my head. I couldn’t focus on my job.
I wanted to catch up at home. I went for my daughter’s violin lesson and a few minutes after we were back the phone rang. An emergency. I worked till 1:30 am.

I slept over 6.5 hours.
