Big News Coming Soon (And I’m Still Getting Things Done)

(In case you missed the other big news going on right now: we’re expecting again :) This will be #2 for us. Due in October. We’re very excited and incredibly blessed. We’d appreciate prayers, if you’re the praying type.)

I’ve been pretty quite on the Internets recently. Been “heads-down” on a huge project ever since SXSW.

I wonder how people used to work in the days before these things…

I’m still continuing to study and practice “getting things done” methodology. Focusing mostly on staying de-cluttered. This has had the effect of vastly freeing up a part of my brain I didn’t know was occupied. Here are some recent good links along that line.

Can Someone Be A Collector and Be Uncluttered?

    Congrats. I have become granddad to four grandchildren in the past three years, a few weeks ago to a grandson, so I know something of your excitement. I will say a prayer for your family. BTW, I have written about my recent experiences with GTD on my blog at that might interest you. God Bless you and the little one on the way. John
