I can spend hours exploring the Internet when I should be doing other things (like getting out of my PJs, maybe?) and I stumbled upon this post that I found intriguing and possibly lifestyle change provoking – and I too, have read much of David Allen’s book, “Getting Things Done” – at the time, I didn’t feel like I had the focus of mind to glean the concepts from the book necessary for it to have any measure of success on me – a challenge I’m sure we all face, at least I hope it’s not just me! 😉
The “spooky secret” post (a little Halloween fun) impresses upon us the difficulty we all already know is there in making large changes or approaching daunting tasks, where just possibly getting into the habit of breaking down the overwhelmingly big resolutions (I’m going to start a blog, write a book, open my own business, learn to play piano and the ever-present… exercise more, eat better, lose weight, reduce stress…maniacal laugh!) into vampire bite (keeping with the them) sized habits like brushing your teeth, making the bed, etc. that are so ingrained that we do not have to think about them. Of course, that still takes practice but is not an insurmountable task.
I will let the rest of her article stand on it’s own as it has plenty of worthy content. I hope you enjoy and let me know your thoughts, is she onto something…
I also like +Hashim Warren’s comment at the end of the article on Google+, where he suggests “clarity” is also a likely culprit in the productivity issue and I know distinctly that is one of mine even as I try to determine what, if any, particular focus my own blog should have. #indistinctivesucks 😦
