Town Hall #13: Pests

Subscribe to Taylor's Town Hall via email.

Judgement Day flooded our household -- an insect apocalypse! We fumigated our home after a long battle with termites, mice, and carpenter bees. Honey now drips from the ceiling in our bedroom. I'm not joking.

Yet pests remain. Trifles gnaw at my discipline. The Internet™ vies for my attention. Ego and self-doubt battle for my mind. Ephemera eats my time.

Your skull cannot be tented nor fumigated. Reduce distractions; insulate your attention. Rid yourself of negativity; don't let mind mold fester. Take your trash out; get a therapist. Proactively prevent pests from getting in your head.
