After pondering topics for Hackatoshi's Flying Circuit, we found out that we were no longer optimizing for maximum social impact, or for good; we were optimizing for a topic that was likable and that had the highest chance of winning. Yeah, fuck that. We decided to take it the other way. We spent our time mindfully having fun, we allowed ourselves to do what we wanted to do without feeling guilty about it, exploring the impact of conscious free time use on mental well-being.
Our aim was to spark a discussion about the shift of focus from doing what we want to being productive. We are driven to feel ashamed of doing nothing, or spending time in ways that is condemned as unproductive.
