Rascals are always sociable, and the chief sign that a man has any nobility in his character is the little pleasure he takes in others company. Arthur Schopenhauer

You are a product of a sad age

Modern technology over the past decade has been developed specifically to waste as much of your time as possible and form addiction. Every institution has hooked into these processes as well, making school or work even more screen-burdensome. You are a product of a sad age. The best you can do is take preventative measures in those brief moments of motivational clarity. Set up systems to trick you into doing the right thing. Put a lock on your phone. Make it black and white. Put everything in sub folders. Unplug the PlayStation. Get website blockers. Put books all around your house near every chair. Put writing utensils on every surface. Unsubscribe to services. The point is to make that five seconds of slipping into screens harder and the five seconds of resistance to life easier.
