Very good question from a reader -
Reading one of your latest blog posts you mentioned that you used to be extremely slow at making decisions. I was wondering if you have any advice on that. I usually have trouble making decisions when there is no clear pro's or con's to a certain choice. For example I'm not sure which programming language to use for my next (web) project.
Does it matter? No. All you need to do is output HTML, JSON or whatever data format you need it in. Python/Ruby have major sites written with them. I'm comfortable using both and don't really have a preference.
Somewhat frustrating that this holds me back when I could have built a prototype in the time I'm searching for "the right answer".
Do you know why you get excited by future projects?
Because in your mind, you can be perfect upon them. When you mentally envision yourself having written a book and being known as an author, being an elite and beautiful artist, owning an immensely wonderful home with elegant furnishings and artworks --
-- at those moments, you aren't you, rooted in the present, in this moment.
These visions of the future are a haven to someone who is tired, weary, somewhat beaten down.
And who, in Western society, is not somewhat tired, weary, and beaten down?
