Mindfulness of Desktop User Interfaces

I use linux. And like all linux users, I’m constantly tweaking around, tinkering with code and settings. However, I often get weary of that. At some point it stops being fun and becomes another thing that obsesses you. It becomes like insomnia. You want to go to sleep but can’t. It’s irritating.

Exercise the mindfulness of Desktop User Interfaces. Let the interface be. Let it adapt organically around your usage patterns. Let go of the desire to make it perfect. Both the desktop and your habits will gradually adapt around what you do on your computer.
