I want to write about something I’m noticing—and struggling with. I don’t have an answer for it. It is, perhaps, a set of observations.When I was younger: in my twenties, I didn’t realize how much of my free time I spent doing things—things that I now try to do all inside of my limited work hours. There are small projects I used to indulge in that occupied pockets of time I no longer have in the same way. Today I want to talk through how work (and projects) eat our time, and why we have less time than we think. And how to deal with it.
