“There will always be too much to do, no matter what you do. But the ironic upside of this seemingly dispiriting fact is that you needn’t beat yourself up for failing to do it all, nor keep pressuring yourself to find ways to get on top of it all by means of increasingly extreme multitasking.”
Yup, another thing about time, routines, how you spend it, etc. But I've been quietly rebelling against a trend I see in the knitting world and that is knitting all the time, everywhere. I get it, I love to knit as well, but I also recognize that breaks are good my; full presence in many instances is better than getting in a few more stiches. And, like Burkeman, I do try and do one thing at a time as I find it less draining.
