Going on Autopilot
One of the problems with running my company is that I go into autopilot. Tasks that I used to plan now become like a Sisyphusian task of brute force. However, I have had to remind myself quite often that I need to sit down and plan things.
Things are always changing course. Things need to be adjusted. Plans have to be made and executed. But our minds are not always prepared to be actively making decisions all the time. There is a certain part of us that just wants to drudge through things-fuck the plans.
I’ve had to make an active effort to notice this behavior, this wandering mind and have to bring it back to making plans and attacking those plans. It is not easy and all too easy to forget.
