Listening to Podcasts Cortex Again

So, I'm noting a cycle here....

I wanted to say "I'm listening to Cortex while I'm writhing this" but it is, in fact, too distracting to do so. So let's turn it off.

....

Okay. So. Last July, I started noting my listening to Cortex during pomodoros. I didn't know how I felt about that. Was it hurting the productivity of a pomodoro?

Eventually, I cut listening to anything whilst working. This was, in fact, a boon to my productivity.

But looking back on the decisions I made, it wasn't sustainable. Which is to say, "I didn't maintain high productivity in a distraction-free environment."

It is now that I must ask, "Why not?"

So, then, what's going on? I think I need to consume certain kind of ideas, and the way my environment is set up leads me to only consume such ideas during knowledge work of some kind.

What I need to do, then, I think, is to properly prioritize the processing of such data in my short-term scheduling.

....

Argh, my thinking is so scattered and unstructured here it is a bit frustrating. If this were a proper blog I'd have to edit this post constantly.

Prioritizing My Thoughts

Okay, there's a lot of stuff swirling in my brain. I'll let it settle and maybe come back and write more later.
