Learning from the past, scheduling for the future

The other night, I fell asleep while putting our preschooler to bed, and when I woke up a few hours later, it was close to midnight and my brain was completely useless.

Read the rest at The 36-Hour Day, and tell me about your own schedule in the comments. I'm always looking for ideas!

I was going to write about 9/11, but your feed readers are probably full of posts on the subject. So, instead, I’ll mark today’s date with this 2001 quote from Jon Stewart:
“The view from my apartment was the World Trade Center, and now it’s gone, and they attacked it. This symbol of American ingenuity, and strength, and labor, and imagination and commerce, and it is gone. But you know what the view is now? The Statue of Liberty. … you can’t beat that."

Never forget. But live life looking forward.
