There’s something nice about, well, knowing where you’re going.
That sounds kind of stupid, and it probably is. I’m really grasping here for things to write about, inspiration for all kinds of writing is hitting a heavy low again. Struggles aside though, having a goal and a clear path in mind always really helps put that extra bit of confidence in your step. And sometimes that can push you over from kind of stutter-y, slow movements to actions that just flow together really well.
It’s not some big dramatic thing, it works for simple tasks too. If I’m vacuuming the house, it’s nice to lightly pre-plan all the sweeps you’re going to be doing as you go along, so that you can guide your one movement over into the next. You know where to go, so you can go there without friction.
Always stay one mental step ahead of your physical self, get that micro-optimization going.
