I have a fetish for it.
I like to be able to say ‘I’ve done this in ____.’
It’s less that I want to be a better person, but I want to be better prepared
to take over the world to seize every opportunity that comes my way, and just to do things better.
In 2007, it was learning to be more extroverted.
That one was hard.
But it was a good year for that. I think it made my first year away from home a lot easier than it would have been otherwise.
2008 and 2009 was meditation.
The reason why it was the same in 2009 was because 2008 was a bust.
So was 2009, come to that.
Which is how we ended up in 2010.
I decided that this year, I am going to attempt a multi-pronged approach. 1-2-3 is active, whereas stitching every day is passive.
We’ll see how this one goes. 1-2-3 is a lot more difficult than I thought it would be. *bangs head*
I periodically do this with my gadgets too.
I have given up on Outlook. Chrome has to go. Word doesn’t quite fit my writing needs so now I have WriteWayPro. Twitter is better with a Twitter client rather than on web. So forth.
I may settle for Google-izing my laptop in the short-term*, but I doubt I’ll actually do that. I don’t like Chrome. I really don’t like Chrome.
I think that everything can be improved. It’s just a question of whether the improvement is worth the time you spend getting there.
I am, after all, an economist. Marginal marginal marginal!
*Defined as for the next year to eighteen months, as I’ll almost definitely switch out my current laptop for another, or at least get a secondary.
