More Than One Step

Cement steps with zigzag shadow.

It’s been quite awhile since I’ve felt like I had so many irons in the fire simultaneously. On the one hand, it’s wonderful: stimulating, challenging, fresh. On the other hand, I’m finding a greater need than ever before to make lists and schedule things deliberately. I simply can’t get everything done (never mind keep track of what needs doing!) on an ad hoc basis. My brain just doesn’t have enough parallel channels to manage that without some kind of external aid.

For now, it’s my main notebook, but I can see the need for some sort of time management/productivity software coming down the pike. (Feel free to recommend in the comments. It’ll need a contact management component too.)

In the meantime, while I work on avoiding task-overwhelm, I’d like to call your attention to the cornucopia of pattern delight in today’s image. Stripes! Zigzag! Literal half-drop bricks! Grid blocks!

So tasty.

    Busy is good! Sounds like Asheville is at least not boring :) I use Workflowy as a task list/to do list. Doesn’t have any time management stuff though.

    Oh, and wonderful zigzags!

    Love the zigzags!

    I look every once in a while for project management software I like, and I never do: it always feels overbearing to me, too detailed or not detailed enough. So let me know if you find something you like!
