I need more time!
If I could condition myself to only need about 4 hours of sleep a night, I feel nearly certain that would solve almost all of my problems. I neeeed time alone, now at least as much as ever, with a wife and two kids. Not because *they* are so hard to "put up with" but because *I* am when I don't get my seclusion. I surge at night when everyone else wants to sleep. I tried once to reduce my sleep cycle. I was shooting for 6 to 6 1/2 hours a night. I thought that was reasonable because that is all some people need. I could do it for a week or so at the longest, then I would just say "screw it" and sleep like 14 hours, thus losing all progress. I told Allie I wish I could slip between dimensions so I could spend almost all of my time off with them *and* alone.

Hey, here's a thought at 3am, WHAT IF I used my time more effectively?!! And with that, perhaps I should go to sleep. One final note, however. THAT is actually one of my goals now that I work less: To maintain a day schedule, sleeping from say, 12-8am, and "switching" with naps to compensate when I work my night shifts. HA! Freudian slip, I typed shift without the F the first time.

Direction is more important than speed. Thanks, Charlie.

There is never enough time to complete everything. Even if you had the time, would you actually do the stuff that needs to be done, or just lounge around. Half of my time off, I sit around thinking about what needs to be done, but never actually do it. If I used half of my energy spent on thinking for good, I could have an immaculate home, family, and body! And for goodness sake, please get sleep. If you are like me, everyone suffers when you're tired.
