Howdy folks this blog has experience a major increase in RSS subscriptions (like it doubled in a few weeks) and people have started to actually leave comments and stuff! To top all that off today Garfield and izzy showed your boy some major love in the davidco.com forums…thank you for all of your support it makes living in my moms basement with twenty cats almost bearable.
If there’s one thing someone Getting Things Done™ needs, it’s a good labeler. For home use, the Brother P-Touch Home and Hobby is affordable, easy to use and refill – and will make you want to label every single object in your house.
Introduced in 2004 by Merlin Mann, a San Francisco-based writer and curator of the popular “lifehack” website 43 Folders, the Hipster PDA (HPDA) is the ultimate unplugged personal organizer. An HPDA consists of a stack of 3×5 cards and a binder clip. That’s it.
19 percent of BlackBerry-owning survey respondents reportedly worked more than 50 hours a week, compared to only 11 percent of the general population.

Hey, stupid. Yeah, that’s right, I’m talking to you. You might think that your e-mail, BlackBerry, smart phone, always-on Web connection, and ever-growing array of computer applications make you smarter and more efficient. But you’re wrong.

As I’ve described in the past, my primary reason for choosing to use a wholly analog GTD system was the notion that I would be able to manage that system from anywhere I had my notebooks, index cards and a pen. Capture would benefit most directly here, as that’s the one task I do frequently when not near a computer.
The class was packed with predominantly professionals, either as individuals or with small teams. The rest of the class looked like people who had an interest in GTD but might be there of their own accord to better themselves or those they work with. We talked to a number of people who were within the education system, charitable organizations, even a lady who is working on a documentary of David Allen. We also noted a few teens that had come with family members.
Web work can be insidious. With laptop, cell phone, Blackberry, the web, and the rest of our digital lifestyle, we can work anywhere. For many people, that translates to working any time. And then, by degrees so gradually that you hardly notice it, “any time” becomes “every time” and web work takes over your life. You find yourself rolling out of bed at 6 in the morning to check your e-mail and still answering messages at 2 the next morning on your cell phone, just because you can.
