This is great advice ;)

Everything you’re worried about, every to-do, every concern gets written down in one place.

One. Not scattered across a notepad at home, your iPad in the office, your email inbox, sticky notes on your monitor, and your unreliable memory.

That scattering makes you wonder if you’ve forgotten something — and research shows it produces anxiety.

So get it out of your head and on one list.   Afterwards,  Getting Things  Done author David Allen says break it up into 4 categories:

  1. Do it
  2. Delegate it
  3. Defer it
  4. Drop it

hahaha!  adam, that's what i was thinking, to the tune of technologic!

Work it, Do it, Punt it, Drop it... Makes us better, faster, stronger...

4) The Incredible Power of “Good Enough”

The President doesn’t make little decisions. The thousands of people working under him handle those so only the big stuff bubbles up to his agenda.

But given you don’t have thousands of people working under you (or maybe any for that matter) you handle every decision, business and personal.

As I’ve said before, “You can do anything once you stop trying to do everything.” Be a perfectionist about it all and you’ll have a nervous breakdown.

Save your limited decision-making power for the things that matter. Everything else should be “satisficed.”

What is satisficing? It’s the art of quickly picking the option that is “good enough.” And research shows it’s the path to productivity — and happiness.
