Ishbadiddle: The Anxiety of Getting Things Done
Good post on combining elements of Getting Things Done with Martin Ternouth’s paper project management system (mentioned earlier here).
Why paper instead of bits? Primarily because the computer is a great multi-tasking tool. And that’s the problem — because multi-tasking is so easy, I multitask. And when I multitask, I tend to divide my attention, wander through projects, look up something on the Internet, etc etc etc. My next project is to figure out how to create a “Desk Kanban” on screen — perhaps with multiple desktops? As it stands, I’ve found that one of the most useful time management tools I have at my disposal is the “off” button on my monitor.
