idealized-me
It’s remarkably easy to fall into the trap of comparing your output to an idealized version of yourself who
can build Rome in a day, then build the great wall of China as a fun side project.

If that’s your vision of personal effectiveness, you’ll always come up short.

You’re not a machine .. the ideal of human productivity is not acting like a robot.
Human need rest, relaxation , sleep and play in order to function effectively.
Dedicating guilt-free time to rest and recovery can simultaneously make your life more enjoyable and more productive. 🙂

Discoveries are often made by not following instructions but by going off the main road, by trying the untried.

Finish each day and be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old non-sense.

Observations – what you want to improve?
Knowns – learned from the past that related
Hypothesis – what factors may caused / contribute
Tests – what to try to change the situation
Results – what happened after test , support / dis-confirm ?

Constantly trying new things, you’re learning what works for you and what doesn’t.
Over time, you’ll discover patterns-things that make your life better and things that make your life worse.

You never know until you try.
