Snow Code

We've been sick with this silly summer cold. Lots of sneezing and whatnot... and you know what I mean.

I was thinking about what Paul Simon said that I posted about in June... Paul said when you start out, it starts out simple. As you study something, it becomes more and more complex. Then you reach a point where it becomes simple again, but you approach it with the complexity you've gained.

I can see that things become more complex. As you go along and you gather experience, you gather responsibilities. More things land on your plate so you get more plates to make room and now you've got your own buffet. (Come and get it!)

To put it another way, how big can a snowball get and still be able to roll?

How _do_ you reach the point where things become simple again? Do you need to be a millionaire and take a few years off?

Well, I don't just want to rant, I want a real solution. Or at least a method to tackle it.

One thing they say to do if you're too busy is to cut out extra-curricular activities. (Blogging for instance.) This seems counterintuitive to me: Let's make life better by cutting out fun. Whoop-de-doo.

What I'm working on is limiting my view of the snowball so I'm just focusing on the little patch of ice that needs melting right now. Excel is my friend.

Oh well, that's how I roll!

Mashup I am not going to make: "Let's Go Outback Tonight" and "Slip Slidin' Away"
