Checking In

Gavin GriffinI have a weird skill (I guess you would call it a skill). I get up between two to four minutes before my alarm goes off every morning. This is especially exceptional because, due to my wife’s career as a civil engineer working on construction sites, I normally get up between 5:30 and 6:30 AM every morning. Whether I have gotten two hours or eight hours of sleep, nighttime or after a daytime nap, I almost always get up a couple minutes before schedule. I guess I have this weirdly accurate clock in my head, and it doesn’t like the alarm on my phone. I sometimes think of it as an odd form of time travel where I’ve found a couple minutes in the day that wouldn’t have existed.

Unfortunately, I can’t see into the future, I can only see into the past, and I’ve decided to use this week’s column to look back on the last couple of months and check in on how I’ve been faring in my endeavors. I think the best way for me to do that is to look back at the checklist I gave myself and evaluate how well I’ve performed in each of those areas.

How well did I control my emotions?
