eno – as if it’s someone else’s

Perhaps this might be a useful task even at this late stage. It has something to do with adopting a skeptical/critical attitude to your own work. It’s a bit like asking “So what?” of your own practice.

Make a critical study of my own work to date – as if it’s someone else’s.
