Problem-solving

It’s hot.   Too hot for me.  My office is on the south side of the house, so it gets plenty of sun.   And of course I’m at home, where I don’t have air conditioning.

It’s difficult to think, difficult to get down to anything, difficult to come up with ideas.

I can’t do anything to make the room cooler.

Luckily, I have at least 4 other options:

  1. I could work on something that requires less mental energy, such as completing my expenses, or getting together my accounts information for tomorrow.
  2. I could move myself north, into the cool side of the house.
  3. I could sit my feet in iced water (I’m at home after all, nobody will see).
  4. I could stop early.

Sometimes, acknowledging what you can’t change, makes you see what you can.
