To do anything requires energy. To specify what is done requires information.

The more energy the faster the bits flip. Earth, fire and water in the end are all made of energy, but the different forms they take are determined by information. To do anything requires energy. To specify what is done requires information.

What to do when you don't know what to do

Putting this thought into a note...

You know when you wake up and have a day where nothing works or you have time and its just not happening? It happens...

I've found for years now that if you can't figure it out, the best thing to do in this situation is to really rest - let go of it all and rest - and if you can't, try to lift, and failing that, grind. There's always something that needs some grinding, tasks that have been put off, kipple to get rid of or whatever. Mindless dull tasks that need to be done.

When you don't know what to do, grind.

In case I need to find some interesting titles... I *would* like to read some David Foster Wallace, but for now nothing else that I scanned on the page jumps out at me.

Focus on Process rather than Product

The title says it all!
