Read this today. It resonated. Someone needs to remind me of this frequently.
"I enjoy making lists and spreadsheets and plans of attack, but I can
get a little obsessed with efficiency. When things get really bad I
realize that I am not only multitasking, but mentally rerouting my
actual steps to maximize my efforts (I will take the laundry downstairs
and bring X and Y on the way, that will save me a trip, blah blah blah).
There is no prize for doing everything correctly, you know? At the end,
we’re all just dead, no matter how sensibly and rationally we complete
our activities of daily living." -- Mimi Smartypants
