Me:Yeah, you're right. I guess I just don't want to loose this groove I'm into.
Self: Here's the deal. Go to bed and set your alarm at 4am so you can finish this in the morning. If you really think it's that important.
Me: Aight, cool.
That's a GOOD reason to stay awake. I love it when I'm in the zone getting things done. It makes it easier to get up the next morning.
That's one of my aspirations. To be in the zone all the time. To love what I do soooo much that I don't even want to go to sleep.
