A writing piece from Scott P. Scheper.

Outside my office window it is blue and clear and sunny. I overlook the San Diego Harbor. The setting attracts many visitors. Yet I've closed the blinds of my windows.
The sun does not light the paper I'm writing this on. The lamp on my desk does. I'm in a place I call... heaven.
I'm energized and grateful, and enthralled with my work. Every day has been like this for some time.
You may be wondering why this is. If so, thanks for your curiosity, but guess what? I'm not telling you, and you can go to Hell!
Ha, I'm only kidding.
Well, kinda, sorta.
I'm saving the specifics for another day because it would take too long to detail here.
But I will tell you this:
It's not a military self-discipline ritual like, "It's 4:30 a.m. —— Time to wake up, maggot!".
Nor does it involve cold showers and slapping yourself in the face. Nay!
The thing I'm being fiendishly coy about is, however, related in one way: it is a morning ritual.
I'm not sure when I'll be sharing the specifics. I also don't know if I'll be sharing it here in my daily writings or in a monthly issue of The Scott Scheper Letter.
But 'til then, I advise you to experiment with different morning rituals. And I also advise you to dominate the rest of your day.
Peace and love,
Scott P. Scheper
P.S. This morning I awoke and felt full and foggy and tired. I felt like this not for a brief time. In fact, I felt like this for my entire morning. For most my life I've been someone who wakes up early. For a week and some change I've been the opposite. I leave my office around eleven at night. I get to bed after two in the morning, and I don't wake up until it's nearly ten. What I'm getting at is this... even if you're someone like me right now, the morning ritual I've touched on here will still help you dominate the day. I look forward to sharing mine with you soon. That's all. Peace!
