You know all that stuff you promise yourself you’re going to read? All those movies you tell yourself you should watch? All those ignored sticky notes? All those things you’ll learn? All that… stuff you’re going to do?
You’re better than that. Get rid of that stuff. Focus on what really matters to you. Less is more. N-1. Attention and time are finite; don’t pretend they’re not.
Sure, mental clutter happens. That’s good. That’s how work and play go. You get ideas, try things, have fun, and make a mess. Don’t feel bad about that. Just clean things up as part of your routine. You’ll feel better.
