I have been giving a lot of thought to where my time disappears–why am I getting less work done than I need to? Why have I stopped reading voraciously? Why have I gained weight? The root cause is clear–I’m spending too much time staring at screens in non-productive ways and getting too little joy from doing so.
I’ve also been asked by the new Climate Council to help plot a course for Maine to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2045 and 100% renewable energy by 2050. These goals are tremendously challenging and will require my focused attention.
Consequently, I am cutting way back on my screen time–and with that, I’m going to stop playing E&P and wind down my participation on the forums in an orderly way. It’s been a fun 2+ years, but it’s time to move on. My best wishes to all, especially the many forum regulars who make these forums such an interesting and informative place.
