I few years ago I wrote about something I dubbed Gary’s Paradox (if figured I could name it after myself since I came up with it). The gist of it is, I can be out exploring or I can be working at my computer, but I can’t do both at the same time.
My time in Hong Kong has been spent working. I haven’t really strayed too far beyond a several block radius of where I am staying in Kowloon. I’ve been very productive. I’ve made headway on several projects I’ve been working on, I’ve been writing a lot more and generally just getting stuff done. I haven’t, however, done much in terms of exploring. I’ve been to Hong Kong before so I didn’t feel that obligated to so much this time.
