permission to do nothing

The guilt that comes from feeling inactive is a real thing.

If you’ve ever thought to yourself, “I should be doing more,” then you know what I’m talking about. 

From my experience, I can certainly attest to it. 

Here’s a crazy thought, thought:

Choosing to do nothing doesn’t mean you’re giving up on your goals or yourself. 

Choosing to do nothing doesn’t mean you’re failing. 

Choosing to do nothing doesn’t mean you’re lazy. 

In fact, quite the opposite: according to Dr. Charlotte Fritz, associate professor in industrial and organizational psychology at Portland State University, “breaks can improve our moods, overall well-being and performance capacity.”


The conventional paradigm around inactivity is silly.

The choice to do nothing in the face of the sometimes-exhausting urge to do more is valid and, it turns out, probably good for you.

The irony of hustling is that if you want to maximize what you can accomplish, you’ll likely benefit from breaking away regularly.

I am learning this lesson recently when my hand (whole body) was forced to slow down as a result of Everyone's Favorite Virus™️.

Very recently 

And you can listen to recordings.. Not sure if Clubhouse allowed that. They kind of forced you to have to be live didn't it?

I remember it like it was so long ago... you and I beginning our phone conversations. And Clubhouse was this new thing and everybody including us two were so excited about it.

Man has time and trends changed fast.

A) Clubhouse went out with powdered wigs. B) The last thing I want is anything that forces me to stay sitting any longer than I have to in a pew at the Church of Twitter.
