Sleepless

Didn't get much sleep last night as I had a mini panic attack about the business thing. The worry is normal, I suppose as the statistics for businesses failing are pretty dismal. Somehow, the thought of Pie Hole, the local pizza joint next to Cocktail came into my mind as I was going to bed and then I couldn't stop thinking about failure. Brian and I walked by it this weekend and we think that they are closing shop. Another business failure.

What makes me think I could do better? I don't know. I just started calculating figures in my head while I was lying in bed and couldn't stop. How much money should we spend on marketing and promotions? Can we get a good location? How much money will this whole thing cost?

I thought that when I got laid off, that I would be crawling on walls trying to find something to do. I find that the opposite is true. My life is consumed by a myriad of useless, little tasks like cleaning up, putting away dishes, blogging, checking mail, watching tv, surfing porn. The things that I should really be doing like looking at job posts, working on my business plan, researching franchises and reviewing finances are easily waylaid. It takes a lot of effort to focus on goals that I set for myself. Unemployment creates a cocoon of lethargy that sometimes I find really easy to succumb to...
