I’ve started to develop a benign hatered for some of the productivity blogs and the endless waves of helpful hint lists that flood my RSS reader everyday. I’ve had to look at myself and ask this very important question…dude, are you actually getting thing done? Are you writing to get a lot of folks to subscribe to your blog or are you really sharing information that might actually produce a positive result, like real productivity.
Going to Target and getting a $12 dry erase board that I placed right next to my desk actually helped me get some stuff done. I transcribe my Google Calendar that I share with my wife to the dry erase calendar board and simply put a minus sign to an un-finished task, that I then changed to a plus sign when I actually did something. Something that I’ve been dragging my feet on for a weeks now got done because every time I turned my fat head I saw that I needed to “git er done”…and this suggestion that I saw on a non-productivity blog helped me really get something done. He didn’t follow the power blogger template and for that reason doesn’t have thousands of readers. He just shared some rather simple information that helped me get something done. Because at some point you have to actually stop talking and get something done.
I’m not a playa hater (okay, maybe a little playa hater-aid was drunk today), I’m just a guy from Fremont trying to get something done.
