July 10th, 2021 | Fuck you freedom

What is the point of having “fuck you freedom” if you never use it?

Sounds silly to say, but it’s hard to use it effectively.

Meaning, without sacrificing your productivity and without feeling guilty.

I caught myself touring Sicily with my girlfriend and thinking about work. While driving. And the worst part is that I was agitated that I’m not at my laptop doing things.

This is the definition of stress. Trying to be in two places at the same time. I am here, in the car, driving. But I would also like to be at my laptop working now.

The only remedy is accepting where you are.

“Ok, I will work a little from the hotels in the morning. Now shut up and enjoy this trip!”

It worked.
