productivity idealism sometimes encourages us to make foolish choices.
There's a thing that I can automate with code. it's not urgent. And it's not my responsibility to ensure it's done.
But I want to make *progress* that is **visible** so I do it manually. I know that I want to automate it. But if I have 15 minutes I can get it done manually, or I can make 15 minutes of progress on automation.
I'm trying to encourage myself to spend the 15 minutes making invisible progress.
