I don’t use this simple technique often enough
I just spent a bit of time this morning organizing myself and writing a To Do list for today. On any given day, I tend to have a lot of stuff going on.
There is a typo on my To Do list. What do you call a handwritten writing mistake – a writeo? Seems like an oxymoron.

Anyway – why am I writing about To Do lists, and stuff?
For nearly a decade, the Getting Things Done book has been a bestseller around the world and is the foundation for a wide-range of offerings from the David Allen Company. This groundbreaking work-life management system transforms personal overwhelm and overload into an integrated system of stress-free productivity. GTD will teach you the tips and tricks of how to get — and stay — on top of it all.
Part of the promotion is a GTD quiz. I am a sucker for these things. Here is what I learned about myself.
I’m a GTD Visionary/Crazy-Maker
On the positive side, you’re a Visionary. You have no shortage of ideas and inspiration. You’re probably pretty good at setting goals, being creative, and staying focused on “the most important thing.”
On the developmental side, you’re a Crazy Maker. Your ideas, projects, and commitments may be outstripping your ability to keep up with them. Things fall through the cracks, details get missed, and you end up with a general sense of being overwhelmed. You might not adequately consider constraints or limitations when making commitments, which can overload those around you.
Sounds like I have some issues. Ok – how to deal with it. I made a To do list. I am going to go buy this book, and I am also going to buy Rework.
That’s all for today. I’ve got to go and get some shit done now!
