Leo Babauta, again, continues with this incessantly great stream of ideas if you want to become effective at whatever it is you do. Extending the concept of stateless computing, he states 😀 in Stateless:
you just do what’s in front of you right now, in the moment. If you’re creating art, you work with what’s in front of you on the canvas, in your heart and mind, and create the art right then. This doesn’t have to be about all art that came before it, and everything else you need to do. It’s just you and this canvas and paint, right now.
