2am Inspiration


I'm going to be short today because inspiration hit me at 2am to help solve a problem I have been thinking about for weeks. At first, I wasn't going to wake up. I was just going to tell myself that I would remember in the morning, but you never remember in the morning. So I woke up - grabbed my phone and starting writing in the notes. 

The inspiration was dead on with good solutions that I am excited to get working on. Unfortunately, I still have a day job and an early morning meeting, so I'm off to grab some coffee. 

I can't wait to fill you in on the new project though. Good stuff!
