I Can't Sleep Well If I Know Others are Working!

As you can see, I changed my blog background to a picture of cherry blossom, but it doesn't mean I'm enjoying the spring here. I caught a cold last week, and it was pretty depressing to see more snow yesterday. 

Everyone else I know seemed enjoying spring, and cherry blossom weeks ago. 

The same thing about daily activities. 

Everyone else is enjoying the end of the day, or has been working hours already when I'm just getting myself ready for the day. 

I feel like showing up to a meeting late in pajamas. 

So this is going to be my quest of the month. (Last month was Multilingual and Identity) I'm going to find out more how others are adjusting different time zones in their businesses and online social lives.

Right now, I'm thinking I have to go to bed early, and get up early. I don't have a problem with that, I just have to stick to the plan if that solves everything. 

I know businesses use scheduled posts. I read an article about mistakes a mayor made in Japan. His scheduled comment "I'm enjoying a peaceful morning today" was posted an hour after the earthquake last week. He deleted it as soon as he realized it was irrelevant, but many people had already seen it. 

Live and learn, I guess, but I'm going to experiment and report my findings!
