Omigod, duien...that is the most helpful post I've read yet on implementing GTD successfully.

I think the difficulty I'm having--which I can only imagine is exponentially worse for supersmart, 'real' geeks (I'm just a wannabe hack)--is that I love the shiny objects. Stripping things down to the most basic elements is a GREAT hack for me. I'm planning to implement GTD over the holidays (did a half-assed implementation 2 years ago and fell off the wagon) and this is a great start.

Plus, I get to buy myself a TREAT: Moleskine calendar! Yay!

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. »
