The 21st century has burdened the human psyche with a wonderful array of problems—most of which are invisible, abstract things. It’s taken some time figuring out how to make them real. Doesn’t feel like anybody created a tool to help manage these abstract monsters. We still do not know ourselves that well. Not in this strange world.
Whenever I hear someone say, “Just use paper”, part of me agrees. Paper is simple. It’s easy to use. Plain text too. Simple.
I wonder if that’s the best we can do.
I use paper. I use plain text. I use everything. Against the enormity of everything I want to do and the unfinished thoughts that repeat, it feels like nothing.
I’ve discovered small tips here and there. I’m making progress. I’m learning how to work with myself. But if I’m honest, the enormity of what’s before me is infuriating and immense.
It’s something like the question of how we want to live our lives.
I wonder if there’s a tool for that.
