A Daily Reminder for the Modern Mind

I need to remind myself.

Give yourself permission to obsess over things: ideas, places, people, values.

The efficiency-obsessed partitioning of time/schedules makes us give 10% of our attention to 100% of the things we need to do.

But the most creative and influential people in human history flipped that distribution. They gave 100% of their attention to 10% of the things they needed to do.
