I’m sitting in my disorganized office, feeling overwhelmed. I see stacks to file, documents to process, potentially “useful” information to throw away.
It doesn’t help that I moved personal items into this space while a room is being remodeled. It doesn’t help that I’m reading news online, checking email, and anticipating a text message. Distractions are more compelling when I have important work to complete! Sound familiar?
I’m a fan of David Allen’s work on “stress-free productivity” and here’s a reminder of his wisdom from the New York Times. Time to get busy on what matters, now.
