Sometimes I'm an Idiot

December 4, 2015

Recently, I’ve had a few too many things on my plate to deal with, and have been flirting with burn out, so it’s time to take stock and stop being an idiot. In order to stop doing something, one must understand the things that are being done. In light of that, let me enumerate some of the ways in which I am an idiot:

The main lesson I’m (finally!) learning is that I’ve been an idiot because I’ve let work dominate my life. Neither Facebook nor Google made me work these hours, or worry this much, or stress about all the things that I do and have done. I let work do that to me. I’ve had enough of being an idiot.

I have a horrible feeling that once I’m well rested, de-stressed, and feel like there’s more to life than a constant grind of work, I’ll be better at my job, and happier too. I’ll have no way of dealing with not feeling like shit, but it’ll be fun to find out. I don’t know whether this will be the case for sure, but doing the same-old, same-old isn’t working well.

I’ll keep you posted.
