🍣 The plan was genius, until it began
According to a c̶o̶m̶i̶c̶ graphic novel i read.
I have been thinking recently about how “your mind is all over the place” feels like a weakness except of course when it generates super-strength. Sure, there are cases and i’ve been there myself where you can’t focus on something and therefore end up starting three other things: some call it productivity, but it’s really procrastination.
However, when the stars align and our brain finds its way around the sweet dance between focus and fucking around, some wonderful things happen. All of this to say that, if you’re reading this for procrastination purposes, don’t worry too much about it. The hope is one of the below slices will spark something useful for what you’re working on right now, so procrastination effectively comes before productivity.
