Productive Day, or: Treading Water
blaisepascal
Today I:


  • Sorted through my big pile of tools, organized some of them, and otherwise neatened up the pile.

  • Went to Agway to get a replacement 1/4" socket driver which seems to have gone walkabout -- hence the sorting through the tools

  • Replaced the broken tail-light assembly on my car with a new one which arrived yesterday in the mail.

  • Cut out the lid interlock switch on my washing machine, replacing it with a wire nut, so that the machine will now drain and spin the clothes it's trying to wash. Bypassing a safety interlock reduces the designed safety of the machine, but as long as we don't try to run it with the lid open, we'll be fine



It's a good list, but I can't help notice that it's: replace a lost tool, fix a broken part, strategically break something so that it works. At the end of the day, I'm where I should have been, not ahead.

It's exciting to think I did so much; it's depressing to think it didn't get me ahead.

There, now you have a head. Barbecue sauce?

Grotesque silliness aside, I'm deeply familiar with and empathize with your frustration. Entropy sucketh mightily, and not in the good way.

best,

Joel

Depends on your definition of ahead.
