The liberation of fewer options

Dear Diary, Today, my home office turned into a stage for a Shakespearean dilemma: the battle between the external keyboard and the laptop’s built-in counterpart. A clash of convenience versus comfort, where minimalism meets the allure of efficiency. With each test, I feel like an indecisive director at an endless rehearsal. Will the external keyboard, with its expansive key landscape and ergonomic promises, take the lead role in my productivity? Or should the trusty laptop keyboard, my companion on nomadic days, continue to star in this show?...

As I reflected deeper, it dawned upon me that our penchant for speed carries with it a shadow of doubt, a silent question of our own capabilities....
