.10 Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) is a great place to be. Not so drunk that the cognition's off, but everything's lubricated the right amount to let you be what you might consider more 'the real you'. Of course, there's one caveat:
.10 BAC on the way up is a hell of a lot different than falling down. The number's the same. Breathe into the breathelyzer and register a .10, but the lived experience of coming down from being drunk and climbing up to .10 with those first three drinks with friends are worlds apart.
This contrast reminds me of fulfilling my responsibilities early in the morning vs at night. I'm still doing the same thing you're supposed to be doing, but in one instance it feels like a gift, an opportunity even, whereas in the other, especially as the day gets darker, it feels increasingly like an obligation.
This feeling visited me on a daily basis I noticed. I either felt like my day was a gift or an obligation. And one of the keystone factors was 'when'. When was my purpose being carried out. When it was urgent and I was acting as a firefighter? Or when it was important, yet time was not the most salient variable.
Time travels in one direction for mortals like us, and a key factor to being okay, no even embracing my mortality and the shortness of time has been living more in states of mind that's unconcerned with auditing the sands of time. BTW this is also what being flow does to you.
TLDR: The less time you spend worrying about time, the more you enjoy your time. Yes this is a slight on the ambition to schedule the entire day to maximize productivity -- especially when aided by new apps.
