"There is no multi-tasking. There is only the monkey mind jabbering so fast it seems like multi-tasking." *
CHIEF AMONG THE RESOLUTIONS about to be made will be the one in which "we here highly resolve" to get more stuff done. "Productivity" has become a pagan idol and it's cult is GTD -- or "Getting Things Done." Merlin Mann @ 43 Folders is the high priest of this cult and David Allen is his prophet.
As Bokonon says in Cat's Cradle, "Busy, busy, busy."
But putter not, I am here to "restore you to life."
As you know, we all have far too much to do. But the only reason this is so is because of the proliferation of productivity tools that respond to our insane lust to be "productive." Driving this insanity is the To-Do list which is, being limitless, is unlimited in its ability to drive us insane.
It's time to stop the To-List insanity. To just say no to To-Do.
Toss all you've previous To-Do Listing Systems you've got out -- paper and/or electronic -- and convert to this new, improved certifiably not-insane system.
