Hi everyone

Hi, I'm Jennifer. I'm working on creating a mind like water, and enjoying the freedom of GTD and paper. I took a seminar from one of David Allen's minions earlier this year, then read the book, and these days I'm re-reading the book and working on implementing GTD more fully. Switching to paper (Moleskines and index cards) has been a huge revelation for me. I've always been a digital type who had spreadsheets up the wazoo tracking everything in my life. But they were never quite up to date, because I'd set up a cool new system then leave it sitting untouched for a few weeks. Having index cards with me always has changed that. They make everything much easier and less constricting.

My fantasy is a completely simplified life, with as few material posessions as possible. I'm fascinated by the idea of selling all my stuff, quitting my job, and dropping out of the rat race. Unfortunately, I'm much too sensible for that. :)

I'm enjoying this forum, and I love 43folders. Thanks Merlin!

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

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