Before and after

Every endeavor has a before and an after.

Before and after it's done; before and after you give up; before and after you have energy for it; before and after you have time for it.

I try to do whatever I must get done in the day before I run out of time and energy.

Not everything can be done in one go, even if you set yourself to it, and it's easy to fall into the trap of postponing for later.

Doing things you know you'll end up doing today as early as possible always works best.

In the morning, your mind is sharp, and you're energized.

At night, as happens to me many days with writing, each word requires ten times more effort than when I woke up.

It's a matter of priorities and focus.
