too many systems…

…and too many lists. It occurs to me that all the lists and folders I have been experimenting with since reading Getting Things Done have only a few things in common. Most contain actions, that completed on time, provide me the feelings that I enjoy—productive, creative, vibrant, healthy, flexible, effective—get the picture? Most have a common starting point—I|doing|Atlanta—go!

Looking at my lists, and looking at the growth of this blog, is like observing the growth of my papaya tree. It seems steady, beautiful, lush, but pretty soon the one tree is actually nine trees all trying to get to 3 meters tall while sharing a half-meter-round clay pot in my living room. Looking at my actions lists and blog posts, I have noticed an enormous opportunity for changing my routines to create more of the feelings I enjoy.

I am reconciled to the idea this blog is more of a shotgun than a rifle, and expresses a kaleidescope my work and interests. It has been very useful but now I am in need of a new publication that will be more focused on the nineowls brand and what I am doing with it.

Look for more information about that here in an update to this post by next weekend.
