It seems like I may never actually complete a side project. I may not be disciplined enough, or may be lacking in some other area. But that doesn’t seem like a good excuse not to try.
The world seems to be falling apart. Enron, conficker, bailouts, global food crisis, WikiLeaks, tax loopholes. I don’t know what’s next, but it seems like it’s barely even begun. Everything’s been running for too long on motivations that are counterproductive to society, and these things feel like relatively mild harbingers.
I doubt there’s much I can do about it. But, again, that doesn’t seem like a good excuse not to try.
So in 2011, I will tilt at windmills. How about you?
