empty the bucket

I'm tired of being in a state of constant stress and panic, so today I downloaded Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-free Productivity from iTunes to listen to in the studio.

I can't even tell you how helpful this is. Everyone should download it now. I can't wait to start organizing. (Words I never thought I'd say.)

One of my favorites ideas is dumping everything (ideas, email, etc.) into a "bucket" and everyday emptying the bucket. I liked this so much a immediately posted it on my studio wall. Now my new goal is to empty the bucket at the end of each work day.

Part of my empty the bucket goal is to blog everyday. And even though the picture quality isn't as good, I'm continuing taking photos with my iPhone. It makes blogging so much faster, which means I'll do it more, and isn't that the whole point.

Too bad I don't have itunes anymore! But, I looooove organizing! I kind of go crazy if I'm not organized. I can't stand losing stuff and forgetting things, so I try to stay as organized as possible...not always the easiest thing. Good luck with it and have fun!

Oh, I read the GTD book in August and became hooked! I think it's going to have to be a bi-annual read for me to stay on tracK!

I agree about the bi-annual thing. I think I'm going to have to listen to it regularly to fix it in my brain.
