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

Since this is actually encouraged...

(I'm too used to forums where introductory posts are frowned upon, so this is a nice start - makes me feel welcome :) )


Like the Borg of Star Trek fame, I've been reading a lot of lifehack and GTD blogs the past months, taking note (or "assimilating" if you will) everything useful in order to get more organized. I finished the book yesterday too, so now I feel ready to take the plunge.

As far as interests go, I like scifi, games, technology and science as well as nature, the outdoors and wildlife. Borganizer trivia: I have caught and kept water beetles in an aquarium, as pets.

I am currently an undergraduate student, which can get extremely stressful at times. GTD feels like a system which could help me organize all that *other* stuff - meeting friends, checking out reviews for that new book, etc. - so I won't have to worry about wether or not I need more paperclips in the middle of an exam ;)

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. »
