Thanks for this, David - it really resonated with me! I have been struggling lately with trying to take on too much and not being able to protect time for proper thinking. Two resources in particular helped a lot with that: this HBR article entitled 'Time management won't save you' https://hbr.org/2021/06/time-management-wont-save-you and the mantra from Cal Newport (author of Deep Work) of 'do less, do better, know why'.

Really looking forward to the return of the occasional long-form essay, I have found them incredibly thought-provoking.

I find this so positive cos it just demonstrates how we have to work in todays unpredictable world - have a clear aim and a sense of direction, make a plan, implement, change, adapt but so long as the direction of travel remains clear progress will be made!
