• 4 February 2008Review graph is back in IE

    The review graph should display again properly in IE6 (and IE7 hopefully, though I haven't been able to test).

    Sorry for the lack of news, I have been busy this week-end and still more tonight converting all my to-dos to the "Getting Things Done" system.

    The past few months I have been excited working on the upcoming Trinity but at the same time there's no denying that I've been slowly coming to a paralysis.

    I kept trying to find causes for lack of energy in my sleep habits, food, sport, etc. going round in circles, and it never occurred to me before that I needed to get organized and learn to manage my time better!

    One of the last things I tried about a month ago was to convert all my to-dos for the website into a big "mindmap". I thought this would give me a better overview of the progress on the site and the remaining work to get Trinity into a first online version...

    BAD IDEA. All it did in retrospect is make me feel even more overwhelmed by the never-ending stream of to do's and potential features. Probably worse is that it was almost unconscious so I had no idea of what was going on.

    One key idea in "Getting Things Done" is to define clear "next actions" for every item on the to-do lists. That kept me busy for a good part of the weekend, and I'm still working on it tonight.

    Another key concept is to get it all out of your head. I was just sapping my energy by constantly reminding myself of what was NOT done yet.

    Anyway, you will probably hear more about this GTD method if it works well for me, hopefully we will see the results...
