Just noted to my diary that all kind of legal cases & compulsory university teaching drag all the juices out of me. Stuff where I am not in control. Stuff where I am just giving out on requests and not building anything on my own.
Solution: I will cut those activities down. I will cut my teaching, and I will cut my cases.
What is left is writing new influential or groundbreaking stuff, and launching new ventures that will generate change. Focus on what you can do the best. Focus on what makes you tick.
