”What’s 43 Folders?”
43Folders.com is Merlin Mann’s website about finding the time and attention to do your best creative work.


I am 35, married, raising two kids (from my wifes previous marriage, she has a third who lives with her ex). I am General Manager and Chief of Staff to the President of a professional football (soccer) team. I am currently reading GTD but prior to that I read up A LOT on it via blogs and various web pages. While I still have not finished the book, I can say that the vast majority of my "tasks" are "follow ups" and "waiting ons", I oversee a lot. While there are certain responsibilities that I am directly involved with, most of it is supervision. I keep the schedule for a man who is very busy running two businesses (the team, his other company). I am hoping that GTD will allow me to put things in a timely and efficient order. I have always been one who adapts what is learned to apply to my personal way of working/ thinking, and was glad to read how many have taken bits and pieces and worked them into their lives.

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. »
