Last year I upgraded the operating system on my iMac and my faithful Mac Mail application stopped working. I had been using Mac Mail to manage my daily email for 11 years, so I was a little crushed.

I worked tirelessly trying to fix the issue and I was told a new computer was my best bet — not the solution I was looking for.

Situations like these happen all the time. We find ourselves at a loss when something we need, trust, and even love dies, forcing us into a fresh start whether we like it or not.

Over the last few years I have become a master of shallow productivity, getting a lot done while never doing anything that matters. I am an expert at cleaning my house, making tea, and getting to inbox zero over and over again.

Unfortunately, my house doesn’t need to be cleaned, I have already had more than enough tea, and my emails can wait. So then, what’s holding me back?

Fear. Plain and simple.

Fear of getting started. Fear of doing something hard. Fear of missing out on the rest of my life while I focus exclusively on something that’s not worthy of a facebook status update.

Yeah, that last one really does cross my mind, a lot.

I’m not much of a gamer. I don’t own any game consoles like the Xbox, PlayStation, or even a Wii. I also don’t have any games installed on my phone.

On occasion I will download a game just out of curiosity. That’s how, 6 months ago, I got hooked on Temple Run and made a phenomenal discovery about addiction, goal achievement, and turning mundane tasks into fun adventures.
