    So I need to move my office, and that means cleaning desks. And usually that means getting frustrated and tossing everything in a bin. Well, this time I've actually been sort of successful, and I think I see why, and I think antidepressants are involved.

    Observation: Normally, if there is a small task that is in the way of completing the task, but it's small and unrewarding, I tend to sort of balk at it because it Does Not Feel Productive. Today, I've been successfully doing those things and getting them resolved, and of course, that works much better. Hypothesis: What was missing was some part of the reward feedback loop to tell me I was making progress.

    Grats on both getting things done and figuring a thing out. Troubleshooting ones brain successfully is always nice.

    I'm pretty happy. The desk I need to move away so I can move this desk into its location is now empty, although I've made almost no progress on cleaning this one yet. But I have an actual hope that by tomorrow afternoon I can be using my office downstairs. Maybe.
