(Note: This post has been sitting in my draft folder for a few weeks and isn’t as up-to-date as I’d like,
but the core is still true. There is only one minor addition to make, but more about that one later.)
Zero is different from nothing.
Zero is a choice.
And I made that choice.
But let me step back for a moment.
I have dozens of little projects that I work and and while all of them run “good”,
not one of them is running excellent.
And don’t even get me started about the hundreds of project ideas that are spinning around in my head.
So I have a lot of stuff, that’s getting nowhere, but using up a lot of energy.
I cancelled all projects.
No more hacking away until late after midnight.
No more planning new projects.
No more blogs to write.
But don’t get me wrong,
Zero doesn’t mean I will stop existing.
Zero is just for the “extra stuff”.
I will still do my job.
I will do shopping.
I will do the dishes.
I will check my mail.
To put it short:
I will do everything we all (have to) do,
but not a single thing more.
Instead I will…
… read books.
… play games.
… watch movies.
I’ll try to be “normal” for a while instead of being in overdrive.
Sounds really relaxing.
I don’t count this blog as a project,
so I will keep updating it…
