@hotdogsladies (Merlin Mann) twittering on managing your e-mail – or maybe this came from his website, I don’t remember because I started doing something else and turned this into a draft I just discovered.
“Time and attention are the most precious things you have in life. How many of us are learning how to manage our attention?”
Look, a chicken!
I worry about that a lot. Not chickens, but managing priorities. I only have x amount of attention and energy to give things. Every day I have to re-prioritize my priorities. Yes, I need to get that upgrade done ASAP, but the peaches will rot on the counter if I leave them. That sort of adjustment would be a seasonal adjustment. Maybe I have seasonal adjustment disorder. SAD. Yeah, that’s the ticket. Still, every day I fret about it. Very unproductive, this fretting. Lot of FAIL involved there.
What’s really spectacular is how much time I waste twittering. Tweeting. Reading tweets. Conclusion:
Priorities: I’m doing it wrong.
