Today is about compartmentalization. And how bad and good I am at it at the same time. You see, I generally try to keep my evenings as uneventful as possible. I need to do this to guarantee my quality of sleep. Otherwise I just can’t turn down the energy before it’s time to rest. My head keeps going with thoughts and digesting my day. In case this isn’t clear, this is an example of bad compartmentalization. I can’t always keep these different mental processes separated.

On the other hand, it’s not always possible to bother myself with everything at the same time. There are moments where you need to park some things and revisit them later. As an example, I had a full day of work today that demands my full attention. I can’t busy myself with other projects and tasks at the same time. That usually turns out pretty good.

This doesn’t mean I can’t do different things at the same time. On the contrary, wait.

Just wait for one second...

...I really don’t want to continue writing this piece anymore. I’m not sure where I’m going and I don’t know what my point is. Honestly, I don’t even know if any of it is correct. I really wanted to talk about how I try to compartmentalize certain aspects of my life but as it stands, I really don’t know if I have a point to make.

Let’s just forget it for now. Maybe revisit at another time. You never know what can happen if this thought lingers a little longer in the back of my mind. Without interfering with other mental processes though.

You have to compartmentalize.
