Listomania

There's a lot to be said for getting all the annoying junk in your head and dumping it on a scrap of paper.

I was feeling all over the place this morning, with a million things going through my head, stressing the heck out of me. But just spending ten minutes jotting it out in point form on a bit of paper, putting things in order, made all the difference. I now know what I need to do, and when to do it, and can deal with each thing as it comes.

I should really do this more.

You would love Dave Allen's "Getting Things Done" - it's all about that... I've been using it for a year now, my world is so much better for it!!

Don't do it, Ben. Yes, write your list, but DO NOT read GTD.

I'm in the middle. I read most of GTD (like Simone I got a bit bored by the details). I found it was a good book to take ideas from even though I wouldn't want to implement all of it.

Love lists though. Love, love, love lists.

Matt- hey mate, I'll have to check it out

Simone- stern words.. what I'd like to see is a debating book review by you and Matt, arguing the books' worth!

Deb-..and you can be the adjudicator!
