Systems of a Downer

Major system fail yesterday, in that I completely forgot about an event I was hoping to go to.

I didn’t put it on my calendar, and if it doesn’t exist on my calendar, it doesn’t exist.

The quicker you realize that you’re not perfect and that you’re a messy human being who has to constantly fight the inertia of doing nothing, the quicker you can build the systems to keep you moving forward.

Now my social events are on my calendar. Systems > human failings every time.
