I like to play at writing more than I like to actually do it. Same goes for coding, praying, and just about anything that requires hard work. I recently realized this and changed the homepage of my browser. (It used to point to my newsreader, where I download the world into bite-sized chunks and read about what other people are doing.)
It takes others less time, I think, to realize that there’s a very short window to accomplish anything in life, and a lot of mundane steps to get there. Sometimes it takes me a while to figure stuff like that out.
So I changed my homepage to my to-do list, instead.
