“Getting Things Done.”
Not only is the GTD system popular, it’s a buzzword thrown around by productivity gurus.
I like to get things done (who doesn’t?), so I’ve tried the official GTD system among many others.
Last month (apparently I’m blogging here monthly now? That’s lame) I shared how I wanted to stop sponging off WordPress.
After keeping up with my weekly ratings, reviews, and favorting (is that a word now?) for this past month, I am really happy with how everything has turned out. Not only do I feel better about using these plugins and all the warm fuzzy feelings, having my favorite free WordPress plugins all in one place is really handy.
Back in March I finally filled-out my WordPress profile.
After years of using free plugins and never leaving a rating, I decided I needed to change my ways.
Rating plugins and leaving reviews is not only an important part of being a good Internet citizen, but also a helpful member of the WordPress community.
This blog post has been sitting in my head since the beginning of the New Year.
In fact, I think I’ll post-date this post just so I can have a nice mile marker to look back on.
I remember several years ago, when I had a “normal” job, completing computer updates and upgrades gave me a sense of accomplishment. After all, making sure all my systems where up to date and running smooth was not only a part of my job, but insured I could fulfill my other duties well.
I read another blog post about “getting things done.”
I would imagine if I took the total amount of time I’ve spent reading about getting things done, I would have gotten a lot more…well…done.
Ironically enough, after having spent more time reading yet another such blog post and not getting things done, I realized something about these ‘experts’ I had been listening to.
If you start looking around the web and start seeking advice on how to start a blog, podcast, or build some kind of “platform” online, you’ll find a crap load of “gurus,” “hustle,” and “10 ways to” solutions.
Ironically enough, most of these “experts” have built themselves up successfully by telling other people how to build themselves up successfully.
It reminds me of those commercials that used to come on late at night.
You know the guy.
I started it several months ago.
I had a feeling I would enjoy playing Mass Effect.
After two friends of mine highly recommend that I take a crack at it, I started Mass Effect after completing the Half-Life series.
Instagram has been an interesting journey these past few years.
When we got our first iPod, Instagram was the new awesome app and social network. We started before it was available for Android, so we felt pretty hip. 😛
I say, we, because it was the first and only Instagram enabled device in the house. And since my wife and I didn’t want to flip a coin to see who would have the Instagram account, we attempted to share it.
