Another week, another Manafort sentencing, though this time, the judge isn’t calling him “otherwise blameless.” So that’s good and based in actual reality.
It’s strange to contemplate the things some people get away with and the things other people don’t. Disparities in the justice system are rampant; now is the best of times to observe it happening in real time.
Well, last week was.
Maybe not this week. Maybe not.
Still on the Tasks with a capital T, taking things in steps, which is one of my favorite things to do when something feels overwhelming. One little bite at at time, and before you know it, you’ve devoured the whole thing.
Much like I’m devouring the live threads about Manafort, which are not on the list but, well, you know.
Sometimes I need a little self-push to do the things I don’t really want to do. One of my tricks is setting a timer; it’s an artificial deadline, a contest between me and the clock.
Sometimes I bribe myself. Or reward myself, depending on how you want to look at it.
Sometimes I can just roll up my proverbial sleeves and go.
It all hinges on the mood of the day. But, however you get going, it’s time to do it. Have a great Wednesday.
