Maybe this would help:

But then I don't know your situation so maybe not.

Okay, how creepy or celestine is this? I had that EXACT page open, redchurch, linked from David Allen's site.
No such thing as a coincidence.

At the same time in a different window, I mean.

Getting Things Done is Awesome! David Allen is awesome, too. He's spoken to our students two years in a row, and both years I've had the opportunity to have lunch with him (in a group). This year I got to take him to the airport. Great guy; great program -- all geared on using a system to put all your stuff in one place, so you don't have to think about it; determining the next action; and freeing your mind to be creative. Why wouldn't that appeal to writers -- or anyone else, for that matter. I'm not the greatest at working the system, but I do it, and it helps.

Jean: I'm working on a tickler file of 43 folder right now (trying pocket pc first, may have to resort to 'real files'). Maybe I'll post on it later to let people know how it's working for me.

Do you know that studies have proven that having a messy desk is the sign of an incredibly creative mind AND a good friend AND a compassionate listener AND a loyal and dependable person? (I'm serious — this was proven in a real, scientific study.)

Nienke, you are one AMAZING person! :)

I don't feel so bad about my desk now... thanks, kg!!!! And Nienke - I agree!

Nienke said...
