I began this blog at the start of 2019 as a project of sorts - it barely has structure or consistency, which is how all good projects should start (I think). After graduating, I've tried to be more attentive - capturing floating thoughts and content from left and right. This is an attempt at an evolution - attention with consolidation. Consolidation is a process of solidification, a sort of an end-of-day inventory check of the brain; what stayed, what didn't, what's lingering.
On a quarterly basis, I want to complete an inventory check of what's crossed my mind - what's been significant and made an impact. (Inspired by what Alan Jacobs does weekly if you follow his newsletter). The idea is to solidify the quarter, to end with a statement of what it was - this creates a mental entity that occupies a place in the mind, providing a reference for future thoughts. (Freezing water into ice cubes makes it easier to carry it with your hands). Here goes.
