WIP: Not Simpler

Maybe I need some help.


First, I’ll note that it was another busy day: Miracle Morning, a little work time, off to a family birthday party, off again to run a poker tournament, home late, a little TV, sleep.

The development of the day: the kick that started last Thursday, to simplify and focus based on the writing business I want to have, is done. The result: I’m not changing anything, for two reasons. First, it would take time, and I don’t want to spend time doing that (or waste another minute). Second, having my website self-hosted in WordPress allows me flexibility that a static website would not. It may not be a perfect solution, but it’s really good. It may well be the simplest solution that works for what I want to do. As Albert Einstein is credited with saying: Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler. I think I’m there.

I wish I could stop doing these assessments every few months or weeks. I wonder if these are just a way of avoiding real work, or if they are a way of feeling like I’m being productive when I don’t have the setup to get real work done, or if maybe my brain is just broken. None of those seem like attractive options.

Anyway, back to real work. I can say that as a result I feel confident that I know what I want to do and I have the optimal tools for doing it. But it feels like I’ve said that before. Many times.
