Groggily, I drag myself to a sitting position at the edge of my bed. 6:30 a.m. — why did I stay up so late binging “Dead to Me?” Friday is my go-to writing day, but my brain just doesn’t want to wake up this morning.

A nap, that’s what I need. A nap, and then I’ll jump out of bed raring to go and ready to write clever copy for hours and hours.

Yeah, right.

Going back to sleep for an hour isn’t a nap so much as it is plain old sleeping in. …

Thanks for making this simple. I read a book summary, attended a three-hour workshop, and read numerous other articles but couldn't quite break it down. It seemed too complicated. You made me realize The 12 Week Year is not complicated.
