Internal Scorecard #7: Long-Term Trajectories and Habit Installations


This is the seventh internal scorecard I've posted. I put these up as a way for you to see what production and productivity actually look like (with the up's and down's, and so on), and as a measure for myself of what's happening and what's to come.

This covers 30 June to 6 July.


"Goals are the things that you really want to achieve, while desires are things you want that can prevent you from reaching your goals—as I previously explained, desires are typically first-order consequences. For example, a goal might be physical fitness, while a desire is the urge to eat good-tasting, unhealthy food (i.e., a first-order consequence) that could undermine you obtaining your fitness goal. So, in terms of the consequences they produce, goals are good and desires are bad." -- Ray Dalio, Principles, p27

Abbie Says: Please Be My Valentine!

On Sleepless in Durham

I met Abbie quite recently and was struck by what a loving girl she is.  She loves to play, she's a bit shy, and she is such a sweetie!  I just wanted to take her home with me.  She is so good - she only climbs into one chair, and that one only after she was invited - but now that is her spot.

Abbie is another foster dog I've photographed in my volunteer work with BFPA.  If you want to meet her and adopt her, please contact Best Friend Pet Adoption, a no-kill animal rescue organization based in central North Carolina.  The folks at BFPA are fabulous and have so many animals who need new human families. Do please support them.

Here are a few images of this sweet, sweet girl.  I think she's just saying, "Take me home! I want to be your Valentine!"
