[Applied Self-Confidence] 30-Second, 5-Minute, 1-Hour

I think people hate being bored or idle because they don’t know what to do. What if you were given an obligation-free 30 seconds? 5 minutes? 1 hour? How would you spend that time to serve your short-term and long-term goals? Most people would probably just check their smartphones, idly scroll through social media, and complain about being bored. I used to do that, too. Then I realized, “hey, wait, if I don’t act now, I’ll never succeed.”

[Sober Living] Overeating? Don’t Stress

With this whole work-from-home thing, as part of our self-quarantined lock-down COVID-19 situation, one would think, cool! As a writer, I need time in isolation to write. Fantastic! Right? Unfortunately, there have been some external and internal stressors that have made this more stressful than, honestly, it is necessary. The long arms of micromanagement extend especially far into work-from-home environments where, well, it’s easy to let that consume me and easy to consume more calories…

[Rowing Machine] 2020: Week 19 {211.5} “Count While Rowing”

I’d forgotten about this since I moved and had to put the old rower into storage, but what I used to love doing was just counting my rows as I rowed. There’s a meditative quality to clearing out the space that would otherwise be cluttered with good or bad thoughts with something like counting rows. My rowing machine’s monitor records these stats so there’s no necessity anymore, but it’s nice, perhaps, for making rowing count.

[Media Meandry] Load Time Reads

It takes maybe five minutes to login to all of my programs on my primary avocational laptop. I give myself over fifteen minutes for my vocational laptop – in case anything goes wrong. While programs would load on the avocational laptop, before, I would check on my coffee machine, use the restroom, or text. Now, I read. When vocational programs load, I’ll do other things like cook, clean, or when everything else is done, I’ll read.

[Downsizing Zeal] Developing Shelf Confidence

There are billions of books I might like to read, millions I might honestly want to read, thousands, possibly, I’ll read/re-read, hundreds I own today, and about three I’m currently reading. Books in those categories will shift over the years. I saw one yesterday that I’d like to read soon. If it had been a pre- “Moving Zeal” day, I would have bought it. Since it’s not, I’ll wait for its arrival from the library.
