This morning, I woke up to a gargantuan to-do list on a tight timeline.
Anxious, stressed, and poorly rested, I armed myself with three cups of coffee that I inhaled within the first thirty minutes of starting my day.
Unfortunately for me, the caffeine that now flooded my system had the opposite effect. Wired, jittery, and a mind racing at a thousand miles per hour, I found myself unable to complete a single task without getting distracted.
Scarcity is a recipe for poor writing, thinking, and decision making.
