The Simple Dollar Weekly Roundup: Tired Headache Edition

A few nights ago, I stayed up until 1 AM working on a project. The following night, I stayed up until 12:30 AM talking to friends. Both of those days, I had to get up at 6 AM. The second night, my oldest son woke up twice in the night from bad dreams.

That next day, I walked through life like a zombie and, in the evening, I experienced one of the worst headaches I’ve ever had.

Moral of the story? I can’t go on as little sleep as I once did.

Myths About Working from Home I found myself nodding repeatedly while reading this article. I hear some version of these stereotypes all the time. (@ freelance switch)

An Autodidact’s Schedule A successful person is a person who is constantly learning and teaching themselves new things. That’s often difficult to do with a busy life. (@ zen habits)

    Wow! Not even the energy to hunt for ten things written by others for the second article? Only four things of inspirations? OOPS, it’s not four things, missed that “What Triggers Heartburn?” bit of inspiration. OK, OK, here’s “Five Pieces Of Inspiration” instead of ten while I’m busy working on something important like my fantasy novels.

    deRuiter, wake up! this is not Friday’s Ten Pieces of Inspiration, this is just the weekly roundup of blog articles that Trent flagged (and that are usually worth reading).
