The Beast Is Tired Tonight

The Beast Is Tired Tonight
By Clay Lowe • Issue #16 • View online
The beast is tired tonight.
After a full day of presentations and evaluations, followed by a 3 hour drive down a crowded M6 motorway during rush hour traffic, I’m beat. But I have stuff to do before I sleep. It’s 9PM and I’m at the gym typing this between sets. I know I shouldn’t be multitasking, but I have to squeeze an inch out somewhere!
The last couple of days have been semi-intense, pitching and prepping for a gig that starts in France next month, followed by Germany in May, and Spain in July. Very much looking forward to it. I haven’t delivered a training program internationally for a few years now, not since Poland back in 2008.
I’m going to have to keep the intro short tonight because I have 101 things to do before I sleep, like unpack, do my laundry, and then repack for a gig I have starting on Friday. I’m anticipating tomorrow is going to be a whirlwind of activity putting the finishing touches on the program for Friday, especially as I’m the host and one of the facilitators for the gig (an annual partners conference).
Anyway, that’s me. Let’s get onto…

Quote of the Day
I’m an anarchist. I’m implacably opposed to hierarchical systems of power and control. I also mistrust crowds, as they often operate according to their lowest common denominator. In terms of evolutionary psychology, the crowd is very close to a herd of stampeding wildebeest. - Will Self
