HOW DO YOU MEASURE TIME?

A stopwatch? A clock? A calendar?

I don’t have a traditional job… I don’t wake up at a traditional hour, and I don’t go to sleep at a traditional time… Friday is no more exciting to me than Monday… Every day of the week has the same importance as the one that came before or after.  Call it a champagne problem of being a director, or that of not having a job.
