Quote for Thought by Merlin Mann

“Why do we end up trying to solve boring problems? ‘Cause we hate impossible problems and we hate scary problems. But on the other hand if we’re scared enough of a scary problem we’ll sit around working on an impossible problem, maybe because it’s a familiar problem.”

I don’t know if this is food for thought outside of the banquet that is Merlin Mann’s appearances on Back to Work, but it definitely brings up some important things I need to deal with. I totally will sit around working on impossible problems (the perfect app, the correct desk set-up, the proper workflow, finding the write long term habit), instead of doing something.

On this day..
