The backlog will never be done


The Backlog, 15 April 2020 by prtksxna:

As you constantly move closer to death – the time you have is decreasing, but, your backlog is increasing, often exponentially. This is not sustainable!

So what are we supposed to do? Prune? Prioritize? Panic? I’ve been practicing an unhealthy balance of these three for a while and am increasingly getting comfortable with its constant hum bothering me.

My answer, when feeling positive, is just to carry on regardless, and to think as little as possible about the bigger picture. Especially at the moment. Do the next thing that feels like a good thing, and repeat. But I totally concur with "getting comfortable with constant bothering"!
