spent time on a low priority project.


I spent about two hours updating my web site.

It doesn’t need to be done today, probably not even this week, since registration doesn’t open until mid-March.

But suddenly I was inspired to work on it. So I did.

The “experts” say you’re supposed to prioritize projects, do the important stuff first and all that.

I don’t work that way. Unless I have an actual deadline, I follow my inspiration.

I find that leads to my doing better work, faster. Plus, it’s no fun doing work you don’t feel like doing (I think they call that a job).
