RE: Make Busy vs. Busy Building

Hi Johnny and Joel,

You’re both working on massive projects that will keep you busy for several weeks. In my own world I’ve been noodling on a stone-age village build for a month or more, and just when I think I’ve got a notion to begin, I spend an hour collecting honey from a bee hive, or collecting pumpkin seeds from my garden.

How do you keep all of the errands and tasks from being a distraction long enough to make progress on longer projects?

Your Squirrel-in-training,
