Next up on my to do of content is to complete the first chapter of Designing Emotion (I've already submitted almost 20k words to our editor) and this chapter includes a section titled "Everything is amazing and nobody is happy"... This I've found to be a rather accurate description of how I feel...
See in the past 3 months I've only been at home for about 4 weeks of that time, due to my extensive travelling for both pleasure & business. In fact I'm typing this on my 24 hour flight from Cape Town to Vegas, where I'm speaking at a conference. So this is another 2 weeks that I'll be away from home.
I get that most people would love to see the Greek islands, London, Barcelona, Madrid, Lisbon, Amsterdam, Vienna, Vegas & LA on a 3 month whirlwind trip. And it has been a great opportunity (to be paid to travel) and experience, but for me at least the timing of all this has been too much.
At the moment I crave routine, I crave a full 7 day work week and I'd love to be home more often and celebrate my newly status with my wife. ;) I'm probably different in that regard: if everything is amazing, I can't be happy unless these personal requirements are also met.
