I check the news, read emails, and ensure our staffing levels are okay for the day first thing in the morning. Usually, while still in the bathroom…

This morning, I noticed the battery indicator on my iPhone drop from 100% to 99%. At 4:47 AM.

“Well, Johansson…,” I thought. “What are you gonna do with the other ninety-nine?”

There’s only so much juice in a day.

And sure, you can plug in your phone for a quick boost anytime, but what about yourself?

I’ve been exhausted lately when I get home, and I feel like I’ve been burning the candle at both ends. Maybe it’s time I plug in and fully let myself recharge this weekend.

So, what’s it gonna be? How are you spending the rest of your battery life today? On something productive? Something fun? Something difficult?

I’m doing something for the first time today that will likely drain my emotional battery a bit. I hope I can recover.
