So this week I'm trying out taking it as it comes.
In general, I think it's a superior method.
It's when there are suddenly nothin' but narlies, or nearabouts, that one has one's doubts.
But here's a way of looking at it: which is the approach of the hopeless manager, desperate & afraid, and which is the approach of the easy-going Zen accepting contented one? When I think about it that way, I think I was crazy to let myself resort to that other way---a habit not just coming from but contributing to bogus expectations & deluded hopes, and just a whole mindset that seems an unwise road to let yourself go down.
In related news, I'm thinking there's a tongue twister to be invented. Something like, "Narly galley, Darla?" 3 times fast. If we make Darla surly, or something like that... Tongue twisters are fun only if they're at least kinda hard.
"Surly Darla's narly galley"?
