My Life-Long Pursuit of Becoming a Robot

I have spent most of my life believing that if I could whittle life down to a very particular, incredibly productive routine, I would be a Success Machine.

I still am in pursuit of that elusive routine. Even though 37 years of experience has taught me that it doesn’t exist– or that it would be impossible to maintain.

But I don’t give up on the idea. I want to be a machine (albeit with creative and emotional capacities) that Achieves.

Why is this lie not one I’m willing to give up on yet? In fact, I’m not even sure i’m ready yet to label it a lie. Is it a lie?

I know that this holiday weekend, I will devote time to crafting and refining that routine once again, trying to crack that code.

Is there a code?
