Hi folks

I'm Jenny, and I work in music journalism. I'm getting something of a promotion next month and will be taking on a new job with more responsibilities, so I wanted to make sure I was totally organized before that happened and had a good handle on how to keep things stress-free. I'm a pretty organized person, but I'd been reading about GTD on all these blogs and figured it seemed like a really great system. I'm halfway through the book right now and am going out today to buy a label maker. :)

I still haven't decided exactly how I'll record my lists. I have a Palm but like some of you I find data input a bit of a pain on it. I'm thinking of keeping my calendar on my Palm and getting a plain notebook for NA lists &tc.

It's been helpful so far reading about the way people implement GTD, and I look forward to learning more.

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »

Scared Shitless

Merlin’s scared. You’re scared. Everybody is scared.

This is the video of Merlin’s keynote at Webstock 2011. The one where he cried. You should watch it. »
