Organizing one’s life — similarly to laundry — in a never ending cycle of entrapment.
Sure, you think, “put a few systems in place and everything will be fine.” You lie to yourself, “I’ll be on task.” “Action items? You betcha!”

The thing is, unless you like being shun from society, you have to keep the threads clean. The thing is, unless you like being shun from society, you have to keep a planner — and follow it.
As an associate publisher, I wear many different outfits. On any given day, I’m a salesman, reporter, enforcer, sympathizer, leader, follower, janitor.
OK, so I’m never a janitor. But you get the point.
