Hey Merlin, not everyone who...

Hey Merlin, not everyone who follows 43folders rearranges electrons. I am constantly transfering your email tip / next action stuff into my job. I am a finish carpenter (baseboards/windows/doors/stairs). I often have to wait on other trades to do my job and I find that having a next action kind of mindset allows me to stay efficient. I keep an 'inventory' of tasks of different lengths on my clipboard. Next time I have to wait 45min for a drywaller to finidh his job I pull a 45 min task from my list and knock it out instead of fuming. I can call in an order, try to get paid, or even just cart materials around. Oh and BTW, as long as people live in houses I'll still get my page in Richard Scarry.

Scared Shitless

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