It's a bad sign when you're playing catchup on everything. Here are some random related thoughts...
I just spent he last 5.5 hours trying to catch up on some e-mail and reading RSS feeds. In the past week I've unsubscribed from several mailing lists and earlier today I worked on pruning my RSS subscriptions and making better use of search/keyword based subscriptions.
I made a good sized dent in the e-mail problem but am not even close yet. I am, however, caught up on RSS matters.
It's a nice day outside. I should go for a long walk with a nice audio book, take a shower, write a magazine article, go to the grocery story, and then take my glider down to the airport. The drive to and from Reno yesterday was uneventful this time around. I guess I had paid my dues last time around.
One of these days I'll get around to my MT upgrade and a few other related matters.
I'm considering a new rule for my schedule at work. No more than 2.5 hours worth of scheduled meetings per day (for semi-obvious reasons, I hope), and no less than 30 minutes of time in between meetings. I've noticed that back to back meetings are a real pain in the ass. By the time I'm done with the series of meetings, much of the first meeting or two has already escaped my poor little brain.
Being a bottleneck sucks. Doing busywork sucks.
My goal is to do far less of both--as soon as I figure out how.
Anyway, off for that walk now while the Sun is still shining. Stop reading this and go outside too. :-)
