I’ve had a few inquiries of late about why I haven’t been blogging. The answer is simple and probably nonsensical: I’ve been working, and attending to some personal matters and, when I fall behind on something I deem essential, I feel guilty doing anything I deem non-essential. If I am at a ‘bus stop I can write a blog, but cannot file my taxes. But the later prevents me from doing the former. If I had downtime at my day-job could I catch up on my correspondences? I certainly could — if it weren’t for the laundry.
Guilt my be a great motivator but for me at least it’s terrible for general efficiency.
