“My brain hurts!” T.F. Gumby from Monty Python’s Flying Circus

“My brain hurts a lot.” David Bowie from Five Years

For me, I need a good ratio of physical activity to mental activity to avoid feeling like a Gumby from Mars. Physically working in the form of putting stuff in boxes and labeling them made me feel the motion of moving toward my goal.

No mind games in my way. No unreturned phone call or evasive answer could prevent me from:

Opening a box

Putting shit in the box

Closing the box

Labeling the box
