It’s quite hard to express in words, but I just want to do so many things. I have so many ideas that I want to execute on and so many things I want to make and try but I only have so much time in my day/week/month/life. With that said, I’m still going to try to create/do/experience as many things as I can in my lifetime before I die as a mere mortal (or will we?). If any new idea matches all 4 of these qualities, it’s all systems go.

TO DO OR NOT TO DO:

#1: Do I want to do it? (YES)

#2: Can I learn something new from it? (YES)

#3: Is anyone stopping me from doing it? (NO)

#4: Does it harm anyone? (NO)

THEN DO IT AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS.
