Well, I have been enjoying the heck out of No Man’s Sky, and letting that enjoyment drive the bus for a while. I think it’s good for me. I’m flying a spaceship! In space! And, er, mining a lot. There’s a lot of standing around mining minerals, and inventory management is a big part of the game. So kind of like life.
But it’s time to take a big step back and re-establish that while the scheduling works, I kinda have to eat the frog in the evenings and start making hard progress with some side things now.
The side hustle’s been sidelined pretty much since the start of the year, and I’ve been making kind of deliberately slow progress on some volunteer stuff (partly waiting to see how other folks will step up).
So Church today will be scheduling the week, as per the new normal, but I’ll be trying a bit harder to adhere to the schedule, with less forgiveness for hard days at work or general floompiness. Still with a mind toward not burning the candle too hard at both ends, but aiming for small, realistic targets to keep things moving.
In a relevant way, “small realistic targets” is also much of the satisfaction behind gaming! So there’s that.
Still plenty of time to be Space Guy, too, of course. It just needs to be dessert rather than dinner.
