I have a list of actions to do and dumped them all in a file and am just repeatedly running `head -1 list ` and this feels like I'm either being smart or dumb

@silverwizard as long as you also `pwd` and `ls` a few times every few minutes, you know, just to be sure of things, then it's totally normal lol

@sequethin To be clear this is me running "head -1 list" inside backticks to just run whatever is the first item in the list, not doing markdown

But yeah, ls is obviously needed sometimes

@silverwizard `ls` every few min is "the clack tongs together every few min" of CLI work

@sequethin If you don't know where you are, you don't know where you're going!
