If This Were Easy…

…I would have started already

Filed under: metapost, tools — Easy @ 1:00 pm

Rather than immediately jumping in and starting with my improvement plan, I’m spending this week doing administrivia type things — setting up this blog, auditioning to-do lists for keeping track of my tasks, and generally procrastinating.

That’s probably not the most productive use of my time, but let’s face it, I was going to do all those things anyway. Better, I think, to admit it that I’m going to procrastinate and do endless random crap with a deadline to get it out of the way so I can actually start at some point.

I learned from a professional organizer that worked on my house that I like my life painstakingly compartmentalized and that I won’t bother doing things that are ‘easier’. With that in mind, I’ve set up a ‘To-Do’ list at rememberthemilk.com. It will integrate with gmail, which I stare at all day anyway, and remind me when I’m supposed to be doing the things I’m supposed to be doing, and can be set up with recurring reminders.

I’ve also decided on my first personal improvement for next week: to drink three glasses of water a day. I’ve set up tasks to remind myself to drink water throughout the day, as well as a reminder that if I’m going to start drinking all that yummy water, I really ought to change the filter in my water cooler before next week starts.
