174 | A whole lot of work and synergy

Peep this, I managed to plan all my appointments this week into one single day. This day. That’s a good thing, in case that isn’t clear! It takes some effort for an introvert to go out and be sociable1 and grouping that effort together is a perfect way to deal with that. An added benefit is that I can allow myself to do nothing else besides these meetings. Another benefit is that I can work distraction free for the rest of the week.

Everything is perfect.

What I also like to mention is that all the projects I’m working on share so much synergy. I love it when things come together. I love it even more than how much I hate putting effort into throwaway projects.2 All the energy I’m spending serves a single purpose. Maybe even my purpose? I’m not sure if that’s a thing I can already claim but I can almost give words to it. The one sentence to describe my mission statement.

Maybe I should give that a go for 200 days of Monologues. A thing I could only dream of when I started this project January 1st. Who’d thought we’d be here now. Either way I’m happy I’m penning this all down so I can be sure I won’t forget it. I can sleep in peace now.
