3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
As half-term week draws to a close, we can call it a success! A good balance of business, me time and family time, another week in paradise. I am not complacent however. I know full-well that what it takes to get it, it takes to keep it, so I will be keeping up with all disciplines and keeping consciousness focused.
I am a little surprised in how little sleep I've got by on, averaging 5-6 hours per night but I have gone with my body clock and feel fine, alert and relaxed.

one is doing one's best.
