Saturday 9: Good for You (2015)
Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.
6) Selena's busy schedule is especially impressive when you realize that she lives with lupus, a chronic condition that can affect the skin, joints and kidneys. She credits "diet, routine and medication" for helping her avoid flare-ups. Do you have any tips that might help us increase our productivity and efficiency? First of all, kudos to Selena Gomez for all she accomplishes. Onto the question, I believe in Newton's law that a body in motion stays in motion. I find that the toughest part of getting shit done is getting off my butt. So I set a timer. I promise myself I only need to spend 2 minutes on a task. That feels doable, doesn't it? Not daunting at all. I often find that once I'm doing, I keep doing.
7) In 2015, when this week's song was popular, Leonard Nimoy died. Without looking it up, do you know why he was famous? Poor Mr. Spock. He died from COPD. I recall him, toward the end of his life, wishing he'd never been a smoker.
8) Also in 2015, NASA announced that water had been found on Mars. Do you follow news about science and space? Nope. But this reminds me of an old boyfriend. He could prattle off the names of all the missions and their astronauts. As a little boy, he dreamed of walking on the moon, and as an adult he still devoured anything space-related.
9) Random question: What was the best year of your life? 1992. It's the only time I can recall ever achieving work-life balance. I was in love and my career was chugging along nicely.
