I’m in Easy Mode

Sometimes I feel like doing things the easy way. I don’t want to think about every step of every process. I just want to do something and then do something else.

The problem is, I can’t seem to consistently define easy”. For example, I’m typing this in Emacs for my Blot.im blog. To create this post I ran a custom lisp function that automatically creates the Markdown file, fills in the YAML front matter, and puts the cursor at the ready. Dropbox then syncs the file and Blot’s server renders the post. Easy, right? Not really. There’s a lot going on there. So is it easy if it’s easy now, even though it was difficult to get here? Or, does easy have to mean that there’s nothing to it, right from the get go?

I honestly don’t know.
