This morning, as usual, I hit the snooze button a couple of times after the alarm went off initially. About a minute before the alarm would have rung a third time, however, I thought to myself: god, I wish I didn't have a need to set an alarm. If only I could just sleep straight through physics. Strangely, as soon as I entertained the idea of it being a weekend (or some other time that I had no need to get up at a particular time) I felt no need to stay in bed any longer. So I got up, took a quick shower, and got to Wean a half-hour earlier than I normally would have.

I think this sort of attitude readjustment may generalize usefully. I'm frequently between classes and completely waste the time available because it seems too short to accomplish anything in. But I suspect if I actually tried to use it it would be better than nothing...

The maximally general version of idea I'm trying to get at is almost the dual of a standard aphorism: "Live each day as if it were your first."
