A friend of mine (who is ethereal to me now) used to argue with me about whether or not people have free will. I always said they did, he always said they didn’t. Because people are amalgamations of probability, not possibility, every action could be construed as having no other choice but to happen. I largely agree with that, but I want to tell myself that I always have a choice.
I spend an inordinate amount of time doing nothing. If I spent even a tenth of it doing anything productive, I would have another completed album. I’d have a written novel. I’d have my projects completed. I wouldn’t feel so pointless all the time.
So, resolving to spend at least an hour every day on something constructive, whether it’s writing, composing or programming… if I can at least stick to that, maybe I will have something finished in the next 6 months.
