I have two personal maxims that generally apply to all situations in my life:
- Life’s too short to live by them rules.
- What the fuck else am I doing with my time?
The first is especially useful when you’re fucking around with some stupid technology or instructions that want you to do something tedious – or futzing around too much trying to perfect something, like organizing my photos or music collection. The second generally applies when you’re freaking out about big life changes, like mortgages and kids.
