Getting Things Done
After my post about how I dumped all my email and started over before it could suck the life entirely out of me and drag me into the murky depths of insanity and despair, several people commented that I should check out Getting Things Done. I read those comments and thought to myself. Huh. That sounds really interesting. Maybe I should order that.
Not long after, I happened to glance over at my bookshelf. Where I noticed this book. Called Getting Things Done. And vaguely recalled that a colleague suggested I try it months ago. I don’t even think I was complaining about my inbox at the time. I think he just observed my general state of being.
So, apparently I am too busy to remember that I ordered a book about dealing with being busy. And obviously, I was too busy to read it. I mentioned this to said colleague.
He said, “I can’t sharpen my axe right now, I’m too busy chopping wood with this dull blade!”
