There's the work thing, the catch-up thing, the laundry thing, the creative thing, the exercise thing, the family thing, the thing we don't want to do, and the thing we've been putting off, despite it being the most important thing. I was picturing a more practical Laziness Does Not Exist, and while it gave those vibes, it did not live up to them. She tried so hard to take her personal and generalize it but the intensely personal would have been more useful and interesting.

That said, I do think there is value in the kindness facet of this book, and in the facet that discusses being a better person to oneself.in the same way, you might explore news ways of looking at how your spending your time, where you place your focus and most importantly, how you treat yourself and others. But luckily, the antidote is delightful discipline—putting fascination, curiosity, and enjoyment in place of punishing rules.

It also took 10 chapters for her to acknowledge that capitalism plays a large part in why we might not have done the thing today, and only barely touched on the fact that many people with lesser means do not have the luxury of implementing a lot of the strategies that she talks about in this book, although that wasn't the kind of depth that I expected this book to get into, so perhaps that's an unfair assessment. Madeleine regularly conducts life experiments and hosts events to explore how creativity isn’t just something we do, but how we approach our lives.

But if we are curious about the ordinary moments, if we tend to them, if we get the good out of every bit…what a life we will have created.If you're feeling overwhelmed and like all the balls dropping no matter how you juggle, I Didn't Do the Thing Today might also resonate with you.
