Two contradictions, one answered, and two questions, all unrelated.

Contradiction 1: it’s better to be mindful of what you’re doing, but the way to adopt a better behavior is to automate it.

Interlude 1: apparently I post about “mindfulness” all the time now. Well, deal with it, I guess.

Contradiction 2: being overly proud is obnoxious, but having high self-esteem is beneficial in just about everything all the time.
Answer to contradiction 2: focus instead on self-compassion.

Question 1: You keep up with movies and TV; why not music? (proposed answer: social pressures, plus we never take time out to just listen to a CD.)

Question 2: Why is “addiction” a negative feature in drugs, but a positive one in software?
