I'm Realizing How Much a One Night Vacation Can Be Worth

I'm in Mui Ne, Vietnam for just one night. It's amazing here, really, it's paradise.

Before this short trip here, I never understood why people do a weekend getaway or leave the city they live for just one night. I always wondered - what's the point? I thought, "If you're going to travel, why not spend long enough to get the flavor of the place you're going? What's the point of going for one night?"

I didn't understand back then. I understand now.

When you're very attentive and taking great care of your time, two days/one night can be a lot of relaxation and rejuvenation. I did two hours of work yesterday in the morning before coming to Mui Ne, and an hour at the end of the day. I slept on the five hour bus ride here, I took a short nap while here, and I'll sleep on the bus ride back - so I'm basically getting 21 hours awake here.

Do you realize how long 21 hours can be when you pay attention to your time, nurse it, nourish it, and spend it well? Sitting by the water, swimming in the ocean and pool, having Vietnamese coffee, drinking coconut milk out of a coconut... ah, I feel like I've done so much living while here, much more than 20 hours of living.

Internal Scorecard #11 -- High Production, Shaky Habits

INTERNAL SCORECARD #11 -- HIGH PRODUCTION, SHAKY HABITS

A little over three months ago, it occurred to me to write up some notes on what actions and production are happening on my end -- this could help readers see the real nitty-gritty of triumphs and setbacks as I put initiatives into place in organization-building, productivity, habits, results. You could also see get various recommendations on technology and processes. And it's quite good for me to stay accountable.

The experiment seems to have been a success and people really love these and look forward to them.

This is the eleventh Internal Scorecard I've published. For reasons that will become quite apparent in a moment, this is a scorecard that covers double the normal length, the two-week span from 28 July to 10 August.
