This Week in Experimental Vol 78


Hello Experimenters!

Writing to you after shoveling snow for the first time this winter–my wife is the primary snow remover in the family but had to tap out this morning. Although people who know me personally know that I am not a fan of either the cold or water-based activities (yes, snow does count as water), I did find myself struck by how beautiful the snow looks. I’m
grateful to be able to enjoy it while reading a book from the warmth of the great indoors.

With love and humor and gratitude,

Things to Do
Assignment: Remember those projects from last week? Check out that list and make a plan! Which months can you tackle which tasks? Think about things like burn out and which tasks are contingent on other tasks being completed. Also, consider how you can build momentum by mixing in easy wins with more arduous work.

Journal: Where’s your anxiety level right now? What are the things that are weighing on you? How is that level manifesting for you physically?
