Well, I’m about two days into my experiment, in which I do what I’m supposed to be doing when I’m supposed to be doing it, and don’t do what I’m not supposed to be doing when I’m not supposed to be doing it. It’s too soon to tell, since the experiment isn’t over, but preliminary results reveal some interesting outcomes
Doing what I’m supposed to be doing when I’m supposed to be doing it, and not doing what I’m not supposed to be doing when I’m not supposed to be doing it:
- Does not result in more time to do the things I want to do.
- Does not make me happier.
- Does result in everyone getting what they need or want from me roughly when they need or want it.
The experiment continues. Meanwhile, here’s some of the writing I stumbled across during my work-related reading, and on my lunchbreak.
- Obama Turns Centrist – Ruth Coniff, The Progressive
- Why Obama Must Become President – Andy Ostroy, The Huffington Post
- Republicans, beware of marriage politics – Patrick Sammon, Politico
- Ready, Aim, Backfire, Marie Cocco – Truthdig
- Does Obama’s rise mean less clout for Democratic centrists? -Steven Thomas
That’s all I have time for, as I’m running to catch a train. I have at least one thing I’m writing and hope to finish soon. That, of course, depends upon whether I’m able to get a seat on the train. If not, then at least I can post more links in the morning.
