There's that line again. The thinning line that shows up between boredom and being overwhelmed. I once learned the definition of this malady. It came in the form of a diagnosis, a labeled chink in my mental health. Now I can't remember it. Here is what it's like living on the line: On each side is a steep decline, getting steeper by the hour. On one side is emptiness, caused by not doing the work. It wreaks of loneliness and disconnection. On the other side are overwhelming performance demands and challenges to confidence. The well worn line is procrastination. Chink.
