I was forced to be off-line through the day today (Monday), when I usually write two blog posts.

I didn’t know what to do with myself.

I could have gone for a swim at the beach. Or phoned  a friend to have coffee. Or, pulled out this month’s book club selection and curled up for a good read.

But I did none of the above. I hovered around my computer, cleaned out my in- and out- baskets, polished the desk timber, organised all my filing, and reinvigorated about five more projects that had been buried in the untidiness. Out of sight, out of mind.

Is it a good outcome that I currently have an immaculate work station but along the way have created even more work for myself just because I was too disciplined to give myself the day off?

You tell me!
