Why no updates here in a week? I’ve been sick. And I’ve been busy—always a dangerous combination.
This coincides with a lot of recent thoughts about, um, my life. My productivity system has lain essentially undisturbed for a week. This has led to thoughts about the source of productivity, and its importance. This, in turn, has caused a re-examination of my life.
As many things as I have going on in my life, I think it’s time to simplify yet again. And to be drastic about it.
So, a few still-solidifying resolutions:
- Half an hour on emails and blogs every day. Maximum.
- More drawing, every week. I like to draw. It exercises odd, useful muscles.
- More reading. I already read, but not as much as I’d like to. And why not? What more wholesome pleasure is there?
- A greater respect for greased wheels. All my little notes to self, snailmail, reminders, voicemails, etc. are to be processed and incorporated into my productivity system every day. Within 24 hours. Period.
Too bad I won’t have a chance to implement this until Saturday, if that. But at least I can commit to it, and work out how to do it.
Time for change.
