Mon. Aug. 1, 2022: Intent for the Week — Stay Focused

Today is Lammas, a big day in my personal calendar.

Much as I would like to take today off, there are things that need attention. I need to focus on each task, and give it my full attention while I do it, complete it, and do the next thing. While keeping an eye on the bigger picture.

That is what this week needs, leading up to my teaching gig on Saturday.

I don’t like multi-tasking anyway — I believe it’s a capitalist tool to keep labor overwhelmed so they don’t actually stand up for themselves and improve society.

One can be aware of the big picture and all that needs to be done, while keeping attention and working mindfully on one task at a time.

What’s your intent for the week?

  1. My intent is to complete a list of short story ideas so I can start writing again. I miss writing. Getting old is a bummer.

    • Make your list and then just tackle them one at a time. It’ll make you feel better in all the areas of your life.

  2. The reason I’m doing this is I found two pieces of paper with ideas and a steno notebook filled with lists.
