I'm always wary when I feel like there's "so much to do".

Because there always is. So it's just a feeling.

I'm wary because I'm curious about where the feeling is coming from.

Often it's subtle: too much sugar, I haven't spent enough time with friends, too much ambiguity in the work.

This time, I'd say it was staring me in the face.

For weeks, I’ve been taking in a bunch of information. I have been binging two online courses, a podcast, and a bunch of YouTube videos. I've been reading (and applying!) a book. I've attended two workshops. If any multi-taskable moment comes about, the headphones go in and a video plays.

But I haven't been giving myself time to act on a lot of it. And where I have, it has been half-assed. I've effectively created a bunch of open loops for myself and no way of actually closing them. I have 237 notes to be processed (think of it as emails to myself).

I think it's time to consolidate and integrate what I've learned and take the fire hose away from my brain.

At this stage, silence or stories would be better use of my multi-taskable time.

I've learned a lot.

It's time to make something of the learnings.
