What if I stopped worrying about [THING]?

<p>Things would be easier if I stopped worrying about all sorts of meaningless computer things</p>

My life would be simpler if I could convince myself to stop worrying about things like1:

  • How should I rename photos during import?
  • What if the app goes away?
  • How will I find this later?
  • Are my notes are in the right app or format?
  • What if I switch to Linux?
  • Are file names consistent everywhere?
  • Kebab case or Camel case?
  • Has anyone at the company done anything problematic recently?
  • What will people think of me if I start/stop using this app?
  • Will this be readable in 100 years?

Almost none of these are truly important, even though they all seem very important at the time.

  1. This is a very incomplete list
