They say the first step in solving a problem is admitting you have one right? But I’m starting to come to grips with the fact that I am in fact a data junkie and it’s time to embrace that
I get overly excited by weather facts and statistics. I love to tag things on my computer even if the tags aren’t useful later. I love to collect information on my financial situation (even if I’m not going to look at it very often). I love to fiddle with personal time management software and experiment with “systems” for keeping my life in order (even if I don’t pay attention to it later).
But honestly? I’m feeling a hell of a lot better lately just accepting it for what it is and jumping in with both feet. I’m feeling more in control with my task list and I’m feeling pretty damn good about it. I always liked GTD an connected with it but always ended up falling off the wagon so-to-speak. This time it’s clicking.
I’m going to be writing on this subject quite a bit because it’s an important subject to me and I’m excited about the impact it is having on my life, even in such a short period of time. If I can help even one other person with something I write that will be awesome. So stay tuned.
