Thursdays have, in the recent months, been dedicated to writing about self-improvement. Through improving my space, attitude, workflow, and other areas, I’ve developed the persistence to work on bigger concepts. If any mentality or physicality were hindered by self-doubt, I’d be instead wallowing in negativity. Let’s continue that conceptual evolution by asking the big question: where do I see myself in five years? In a better spot, of course! So what’s the “getting there” plan?
Sweeping, like editing, is a hidden necessity. I may sometimes write a document without reading through the entire document once more to refine word choices, omit redundant phrases, increase the punchiness, while decreasing the ambiguity. Perhaps it’s carelessness? I may similarly pass through a room without cleaning the meeting points between vertical and horizontal surfaces. Perhaps also carelessness? Let’s muse on how the art of cleaning can augment the act of writing with one word:
“They have one of those in the back.” Most gyms have rowing machines. It’s just they’re hidden in plain sight because they’re not glamorous devices. Running is sexy. Rowing is… not. One treadmiller had rested his backpack on the sole rower at this one gym, and when I motioned that I wanted to use it, while courteous, he seemed surprised that someone was going to use it. See, I don’t like rowing being my secret.
