A I am really glad I track my time nowadays. I was able to look at this week and see that I’ve been making my time goals on Parallax for the past four days, plus a chunk on last Sunday. So I feel no qualms in giving myself permission to give in to this lack of energy I’m feeling today.
I have also not had anything to eat today besides some begniets so I may change my mind after getting a sandwich in me...
(I am still a half hour short of working my current total weekly goals. If I do make that then maybe next week I might try upping what I’m asking myself to do by a little bit, I think there’s definitely room to be a bit more productive without risking burnout.)

The first reply: There is no magical solution to this, you'll just have to tediously copy it, rotate, and scale manually.
Me, replying to them: There is a magical solution and here it is. *writes a short, numbered list of precise steps*
