I have found that with Inboxes (buckets), less is more. For instance, I try to put is much in my Outlook Inbox as possible. That’s why I prefer jott to a voice recorder. With jott the message ends up in my Inbox and I’ve eliminated a bucket. Another thing I do is send myself an email for things I need to add to my “brag list”.

In a recent study authors found that too much psychological distress, such as anxiety or depression, can actually increase your chances of having Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI); a decline in mental and thinking ability.
The study did not say how chronic distress leads to the development of MCI. However, we know exercising our brain can increase memory and attention, which in turn might lead to a more relaxed state-of-mind for a healthier brain and body.

I’ve heard David Allen say that many people miss the real purpose of making lists in GTD. You don’t make the lists to only do what’s on the lists and nothing else in your life. You create the lists so that the lists take your attention off that stuff so that you can REALLY do what you want to do. And then do that with 100% of your focus, attention and creativity.

TwitterCal, if it isn’t already obvious, lets you use Google Calendar via Twitter. Pretty soon I won’t even have to leave Twitter anymore. Not that I do, which I guess is a pretty sad statement itself.
