Another week, another month. January has done its thing and the year marches on apace. Still, February is going to be a month of getting shit done! It's about time I really knuckle down and stop using just about everything as an excuse.
I was listening to an interview with Ryan Holiday yesterday — author of "The Daily Stoic" and "The Obstacle is the Way", among others — in which he was talking about lockdown and the notion of dead time and alive time. Dead time is when you just let things happen, sit on the sofa, watch TV and let it wash over you. Alive time is when you make things happen, learn a language, write a book, whatever. Alive time is a time of betterment.
I've had way too much dead time in the past ten months, things have definitely been better recently but there is a lot more I can and will do.
Who was it that said forget January, resolutions should start in February?
