Your cascading catalog of to-dos

Your cascading catalog of to-dos. It never ends. That’s the bad news.

The good news is that you are in charge and can do whatever you want, you’re the CEO of You, Inc.

You can devise a completely different structure and processes for handling your life’s to-do lists.

You can move to a different place in your organization. You can physically move to a different place to call home.

You can do whatever you want.

Will it be easy? No.

Will it seem impossible? Yes.

Will you let any of that stop you?

How long should a great TEDx Talk last?

Grinnell Glacier overlook
It’s 8.5 miles from the Logan Pass (Continental Divide) Visitor’s Center. The short way to the shuttle is another 6 miles, mostly downhill. You can also hike 8.5 miles back the way you came.

There is a TEDx Talk here by Duncan Wardle, a former Disney executive. It’s almost 18-minutes long.

How does under 10 minutes sound? Eight minutes?

What about 12 minutes?

The difference a new day can make

The difference a new day can make has the potential to be exceptional.

Sometimes we don’t even need a good night’s sleep to feel ok about something that was previously driving us crazy.

Tension is a sign we are overwhelmed and unable to think rationally.

For example, if we asked, “A year from now will i still be worried about this?”

If our answer is yes, and it rarely is, then figure it out. If our answer is no (and it almost always is), surrender quickly to the tension and let it disappear.

And then there’s the paperwork of life

And then there’s the paperwork of life.

Went outside yesterday (a Saturday) to get some fresh air from a long work day. Yes, the weekends aren’t immune from work, even when you’re the boss and “control” how and when work gets done.

Our landscape maintenance crew’s mower broke down Tuesday at our house and they promised to return Friday. They didn’t make it Friday, nor yesterday. i walk outside and spent two hours pulling weeds.

Highest recommendation for this Naval podcast episode

Naval podcast
Loved this, even though at two hours long, it took several tries to complete.
Naval podcast
Just some context.

Naval Ravikant has a two-hour guest podcast appearance at Farnam Street here.

This is not a one-sitting listen. It can be, but it certainly wasn’t for me. It validated many things and it stimulated thoughts that few others can.

It has my highest recommendation for anyone seeking meaning and deeper perspective.
