Days Twenty-Six and Twenty-Seven: One Amazing, One Very Good

Day Twenty-Six turned out to be incredible.

Lately, I've been working a practical process to get into "High Creative Mode" -- I think has a high hit-rate for getting into that Mode, but I'm not able to consistently execute it. D26, I did --

Jet lag sucks. I remember the worst time I had it, during one of my first trips to Japan. I was so excited to get out and see Tokyo, but I just couldn't pry myself from the bed.

I wrote about this before, but made it too complicated. Here's the easy version:

The only thing that matters is that you are at an appropriate level of tiredness for the time you land. The goal is to compromise your comfort on the flight and possibly the time right before the flight to achieve this.
