The deformed butterfly gets plucked up by a bird and feeds the next generation of avians. That’s also how most big business lives. By encouraging more people to try startups, they get more food for their young. See “invention marketing”. ;) I have the same pile of to-do notes…just not the pressure to prove anything. If you want to get them done, try organizing some at night so they are already prioritized in the mornings. Pick a number, like 5, 7, etc. It can vary, too.
