That. I lack it. There’s a part of me that whines that I don’t have any basis for saying this, that I need more data before I start flinging these thoughts and applying them to myself, but I think I’m getting better at seeing myself justify in real-time (who came up with rationalization as a synonym for justification? It bothers me), and I have to write something, so hey-yo!
Call it heroic responsibility, call it getting shit done, call it programming, muthafuckas. Right now I’m not meeting goals set out by my meta-self, and am instead maximizing the hedons I know will be gone in a week. So, in the next few weeks, I’m going to write at least one post about defragmenting myself: how to make sure I’m applying knowledge of my heuristics and biases to all aspects of my life, not just the parts someone pointed out, and a post on how to make sure the world is being optimized around me. And if all goes well, I’m also going to be reading a lot of books.
Yes, I’m punting. Yes, I want to sleep. Yes, Bastion is a good… hey, stop that!
