You just can't do everything every day.  Once you are at peace with that, and not worrying about 'doing everything' (as facebook and other highlight reels make you think you should do), you'll be fine.
For things you want to do, you will find time.  Just let go of when the right time is.

there are no exact and complete definitions [[think]]

I spent a while ago trying to figure out 'exact' definitions of functional vs object oriented programming
Or exact formalisms for quantum mechanics
Or 'correct' ways of working with git
Or precise guides of composing music
etc.
but at some point you realise there is no right way once you understand things enough, there is a continuum.
There is no right way and often you can do great things regradless exact formalisms etc
need to develop this thought more and come up with more examples

[2019-05-21] maybe blog once I develop the thought? [[toblog]]

[2019-05-21] or about the way I look, or the music I listen, or whether I socialize or not, or whether I have a girlfriend or not. There is no right way, and what's the most important thing is no one actually gives much shit about what you are doing with your life.

[2020-09-07] How can you make subjective time go slower? | Hacker News [[mind]]

Just do new things. Go to new places, talk to new people, try new things. It can be as simple as not taking the same route to work/grocery store/etc every time. Mix it up.
Some claim that time feels quicker as you get older because each passing minute is a smaller and smaller portion of your life(e.g. summer for a 6 year old is 5% of their life, whereas it is only half a percent of the life of a 50 year old). But I don't buy that.
Time goes quicker as you get older because people get stuck in the same routine, and it is quite easy to compress memories together when you do the same thing every day. So, go explore, every day, even if it is just mental exploration through books or music, and time will surely slow down.

[2019-01-11] Therapy and rationality /r/slatestarcodex [[therapy]]

I hope this is relevant here since the blog itself is at the intersection of these two subjects. I'm aware there was a long thread about therapy recently, but this is a more specific question.
I've tried a few different therapists now in the attempt to find one who's right for me, and at least two have independently told me the same thing: that my mode of discussion in the therapy sessions is too "abstract". This tends to happen when I start talking about percentage probabilities, or how well a theory fits the available facts, or whether a causal chain has a weak link – in other words, what they call "abstract", I would call scientific or rationalist.
When I use language like this, I'm usually trying to clarify and evaluate some assertion they've made about how my unconscious works, or what is happening in my life, or whatever. ("You think you want X, but maybe really you want Y, and that's why you do Z" etc.) And I feel like, in some cases, when their hypothesis is analysed more rigorously, it's revealed as a bit strained or patchy – as in so many fields, a vague formulation makes a half-baked claim sound at least initially plausible.
I'm not trying to claim I'm "too intelligent for therapy"! (These therapists have stunned me with their insights sometimes.) Only that a rationalist approach sometimes helps cut through some of the fog – and yet therapists don't seem to welcome it much.
Is there a real conflict here? Is therapy – at least as it's conventionally practised in the English-speaking world – inherently wary of an empiricist mindset? Or do I just need to keep looking for a therapist who thinks the way I do? I assume that when Scott Alexander is seeing patients, he is open to this stuff!

So I'm not even going to discuss that rationalization with you. I will give you advice about how to react to your emotions and I think you'll end up happier if you listen."

need to live long <- need to be physically healthy <- need to eat good food <- research/learn about the nutrition, different diets etc <-
log all food <- can't log restaurant/takeaway food <- cook almost all food by youself
need to spend less time cooking food <- become less fussy, cook in bulk, as little prep and processing as possible_

[2021-01-18] Ode to a Flower: Richard Feynman’s Famous Monologue on Knowledge and Mystery, Animated – Brain Pickings

I have a friend who’s an artist and has sometimes taken a view which I don’t agree with very well. He’ll hold up a flower and say “look how beautiful it is,” and I’ll agree. Then he says “I as an artist can see how beautiful this is but you as a scientist take this all apart and it becomes a dull thing,” and I think that he’s kind of nutty. First of all, the beauty that he sees is available to other people and to me too, I believe…

I can appreciate the beauty of a flower. At the same time, I see much more about the flower than he sees. I could imagine the cells in there, the complicated actions inside, which also have a beauty. I mean it’s not just beauty at this dimension, at one centimeter; there’s also beauty at smaller dimensions, the inner structure, also the processes. The fact that the colors in the flower evolved in order to attract insects to pollinate it is interesting; it means that insects can see the color. It adds a question: does this aesthetic sense also exist in the lower forms? Why is it aesthetic? All kinds of interesting questions which the science knowledge only adds to the excitement, the mystery and the awe of a flower. It only adds. I don’t understand how it subtracts.

very similar to my perception!

I literally cannot believe that a full year down the line, people still use ‘it won’t kill *me*’ as an argument in public.

Think what you like about any of it, but if the fact that you personally not being in a risk group is your cue to not take care, that says a lot about you.

feels like covid taught me something about cooperation & personal risk
I definitely became more appreciative of regulations (even though governments are kinda shit at them)
