Debt of Containment

Another day wraps, drifting off into the melancholy lament of Conor Oberst: Don’t feel badly / I’m barely angry / It’s not too much to contain.

An “X” emphatically marks all of today’s bullets, but there’s still time and tasks that seem to have slipped through the cracks. I only started trying out the Bullet Journal system at the beginning of this month, so there’s much to learn and refine. Allowing myself to imperfectly practice this style of a to-do list is helping chip away at the usual nagging perfectionism that inevitably steers my progress into a perpetual impasse.

One “X” at a time, one day at a time!

Today’s “coffee” experiment: a grande blonde pumpkin spice latte with coconut milk, no whip, and only half the syrup. It was okay, got me through the rest of the workday. All of the specialty drinks at Starbucks are exceedingly sweet, so cutting out as much syrup as you can is sage advice.

While I continue weeding out my book collection, the reading and buying carry on: Mindful Money by Jonathan K. DeYoe and Busy by Tony Crabbe currently occupy my attention, and a copy of AI Superpowers by Kai-Fu Lee should find its way here sometime next week.

RIP Connect!
