For 6 months, I was the sole worker at Kalimba Magic. I wrote the newsletters, wrote the books, I answered the phone and took the orders, maintained inventory, assembled, tuned and painted kalimbas, and packed and shipped.
This work was a great time for me. A Zen-like focus on my craft resulted. I surely came out of this period a better human.
When I recently hired Kacy Todirita to help with the kalimba business, there was suddenly enough slack in my schedule that I decided to try and change my life a bit. I would wake at 5 AM, chores till 6, walk with my kalimba till 7, and then every morning, I would record music. I would try this new life on for 100 days.
Well, what do you think happened with this highly structured plan?
