Clean my room! No Jordan Peterson, I don’t want to. Rule 6 and atomic habits both want me to clean.

Do they not know cleaning sucks. That I don't want to use my free energy to clean, I want to use it to play, to write, to work. Maybe use some of the lessons to get fit. But clean. Stuff that.

Emails from a modern Stoic – Letter 5

Think about it, wild animals run from the dangers they actually see, and once they have escaped them worry no more. We however are distressed by our past and future. A number of our gifts do us harm. Memory brings back the agony of fear while foresight brings it on prematurely. No one confines their unhappiness to the present.
