All right, so I’ve gone a day without playing any games but NYT Crossword. The only way I got through it was that I knew I wanted to post something on the blog today (public judgement as incentive). How was my day? Did I get more done? Yes… worked on taxes, got a few minutes more of work-out at the gym… got the dinner ready on time… felt virtuous, but only in theory…
It was a slog.
I think it’s this idea of having a little rewards to punctuate your day. Or the illusion of rewards. Because there’s always more to do, it’s the Augean stables here on Beachwood Drive, and Jack doesn’t want to be a dull boy…
How weary, flat, stale and unprofitable seem to me all the uses of this world… we’ll see how long this lasts.
Ah well, guess I’ll have more time for Facebook!
