On being quiet
I have developed–over the years–an aversion to loud noises, loud people, loud music… All of it I physically detest. I feel a similar dislike to other kinds of noise. Visual noise being one. But there are others harder to put my finger on them.
I dislike busy user experiences. App UIs that are cluttered or ugly.
I dislike complicated processes. I always look for the elegant answer today problem.
I’m easily distracted. I can only focus on one thing at a time. Our lives are just polutted with too much stuff. Too many papers. Too many objects. Too many compromises. Too many responsibilities. Too many hours online.
Too many details.
Simplicity is peace.
There’s is just too much noise everywhere and I’d like to cut back. For me that starts with accepting that being busy, or occupied had no merit.
I need to do less, to focus more, and produce more.
