43 folders

I listed the "Getting Things Done" today on my Ipod. I really need to real it twice.

I must say it seems daunting to actually have 43 folders, actual physical folders.

Is there another way?

Sorry, I am not well educated and promise to read more before I ask too many dumb questions.

Do a search on here, I’m

Do a search on here, I'm pretty sure Merlin posted about his dropping of the physical folders.

I like them because I like to stick things like invites, articles I need to have read by a certian date and the like in there, but they are not essential. Focus on the core concepts, like the action list and the weekly review. You can worry about a tickler filer later. If it works for you then great, if not then use what does work for you.

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. »
