My alarm goes off at 5 a.m. Sleep is for the lazy. Coffee in hand and looking good in my pajamas, I'm at my home-office computer by 5:10 a.m. I keep this routine every day of the week. Today I must write a blog post, create two "Dilbert" comics, edit a pitch deck for my startup, CalendarTree.com, and handle several hours of soul-destroying tax issues. If time allows, I'll finish the humorous article I started writing about graduation gifts as a way to goose interest in my latest book. Why did I think it was a good idea to write a book, launch a startup, blog regularly, restart my speaking career, and work as a syndicated cartoonist at the same time? I've been called a dangerous combination of productive and stupid. That seems fair.
