I spent three days deconstructing 19000 lines of a front end application just to display a dropdown value correctly in a single context. One value.

Practice makes perfect I guess. I think this is why I do this. I am that sort of person who when they are walking along and see some rope in a knot lying on the ground I will fight the urge to untangle it.

Constructive outlets for bad habits. The question is, am I a slave to the struggle, or a junkie for victory?


Practice non-action.
Work without doing.
Taste the tasteless.
Magnify the small, increase the few.
Reward bitterness with care.

See simplicity in the complicated.
Achieve greatness in little things.

In the universe the difficult things are done as though they were easy.
In the universe great acts are made up of small deeds.
The sage does not attempt anything very big,
And thus achieves greatness.

Easy promises make for little trust.
Taking things lightly results in great difficulty.
Because the sage alwayss confront difficulties,
He never experiences them.
