I still can't get over how good a motto "anything worth doing is worth doing poorly" is when you're suffering from executive dysfunction or physical disabilities

Monotony is the enemy of learning.
Pablo A. Celnik, M.D., professor of physical medicine and rehabilitation at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine:
“What we found is if you practice a slightly modified version of a task you want to master, you actually learn more and faster than if you just keep practicing the exact same thing multiple times in a row,”
If a repetitive exercise bores you,

4. Identify how you plan on using FB up front, do *only* that and log out when you're done.

Does all that sound strange to you? Are you quite, quite comfortable being the outsider? You'll find yourself crossing paths with fellow outsiders when you JOIN...
