The Energy of Avoidance

How much energy do I exert each day avoiding things I don't feel like doing?

If I could harness that energy, this laptop would not be running out of charge.

If I hadn't spent the last two hours in other windows on said laptop, it would not need that charge.

And yet--often those side pursuits have value, too. Reading something that leads to new understandings. Deepening relationships with colleagues and acquaintances. Contemplating a big challenge and figuring out a new way through.

In all its inefficiency, it works.
