Handwriting Changed After 14 Years

“So much time, and so little to do! Strike that, reverse it.” — Willy Wonka

My handwriting has changed drastically over the years, and not exactly for the better. It speaks to the busy family life and hectic career. I have lots of things to do. I try to capture these “action items” using various means – post-it notes, sheets of paper, and more recently Remember the Milk which I have an on-again, off-again relationship with (for the moment it’s on). The todo lists pile up. Once in a while, I take my lists and scrap a lot of the stuff in them. It’s my loose interpretation of Mark Allen’s GTD“Empty the [lists] regularly. Not emptying your [lists] is like having garbage that nobody ever dumps.” My confession is I’m still working on making GTD work for me.

Getting back to basic isn’t such a bad idea once in a while. For now, I need to go work on improving my handwriting.
