As I said in the 10th anniversary post for my blog, “Everything is Changing.” I have been realizing that one of the things I love most is to be able to do tasks and projects in whatever order feels right to me at the time. Having to do things in order of urgency is sometimes necessary, but feels like a cost to me. So I’m going to try an experiment of blogging with less of a weekly schedule to my posts. I plan to write as I feel inspired to write, aiming to continue to write at a good pace overall.
In some ways, this is a return to how I did my blog at the very beginning. Then I had no particular pattern to my posts. They came out whenever I had an idea. (Of course, then I was so excited by beginning to blog that I couldn’t sleep!)
There is a Golden Mean between being too flexible and being too rigid. (See “The Golden Mean as Concavity of Objective Functions.) I think I have been too focused on avoiding the harm from being too flexible (thinking of it as being undisciplined) and not focused enough on the harm from being too rigid. But I’ll try not to overcorrect.
