I gave 2Do a shot, then looked at the upgrade pricing for OmniFocus. I tinkered with the idea that Things 3 was the update that would work for me. I […]

The temptation to reschedule

Since then I have realized that the temptation not to follow through is compounded by ease.

We can cancel five […]

When You Don’t Feel Like You’re Doing Great Work

I re-read the transcript this morning while I was once more feeling exasperated with how little time I’ve had for writing lately. (For me, writing is my yardstick for productivity.
