Pick fewer battles

“Pick your battles. Pick… pick fewer battles than that. Put some battles back. That’s too many.”

Being spread too thin has become the defining problem of my middle age, and at present I am failing to maintain all the content on PainScience.com as well as I’d like—too much science, too little time.

It’s not a disaster. My standards are high, and I’m probably managing to keep most of my content at a level where no reader will ever think, “This place seems a bit shabby.” But I know that some areas of the site are on the brink of becoming like a neighbourhood with falling property values… and I know that there are some readers I respect who would definitely notice these troubled areas too.

I bit off more than I could chew years ago, around 2010 to 2012, and I’m still pluckily trying to swallow that. And the way things are going (the health challenges) I’m not sure how I ever get through it.
