In the down-time between classes I'd flip through my project list and my index cards and make sure everything was moving along. I didn't do big formal reviews, just small ones as something started nagging me or a had some free time.

I recall that in the book, david Allen says that when people ask him how often he does a review, he tells them it's as often as he needs to.

I'm sure it's different for everyone.

I find that some projects require more review than others, and some can be pretty much left alone. It feels good, though, to get a lot of things done and suddenly you're free to focus on what's really important.

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. »
