2012 Intentions: 3rd quarter results. F-it-all-edition

Yeah. Self-improvement? For the birds.


  1. Sometimes getting through is all we can hope for. I've essentially abandoned self improvement in the interest of self preservation for the last month or so.

    1. I thought of my entire residency as a "self-preservation" period. I'm really impressed you are striving so hard at all. I'm glad you're enjoying your vacation, I'm craving some deep dish pizza right now.

  2. Self-improvement is over-rated :) Hope things calm down soon.

  3. I think the syllabus says that caring enough to keep track gives you enough points for a D minus... Have some pizza.

  4. I am great at setting intentions. Following through? Not so much.

    I just started reading Gretchen Rubin's Happier at Home and it's set a fire under me to start again, again. Then I read your post and Solitary Diner's comment to prioritize self-preservation over self-improvement and I'm thinking twice...

    Here's to a happy and healthy 4th quarter for all of us.

  5. I third (?) the call for self preservation. A most noble thought.

  6. Ana -- You don't have to publish this, of course, but are you doing ok? I saw your comment over at MiM and thought you might need someone to talk to. I'm happy to email or talk if you want. Or go for a run... (would that be weird? I would be slow.). Let me know.
