Right Now

I’ve been thinking a lot about Essentialism recently. What is really important to me? I’ve started a new job. I have more time in the day due to a lesser commute. Now I have the time to figure out what to focus on, and act on it. I have way too much stuff cluttering up my house and mind. Too many projects.

I noted then that this was a great (and fast)
