So I'm reading "Making it all Work" and wishing I could find my copy of "Getting Things Done," both by David Allen. There's so much in here to unpack and to figure out, and I'm having a hard time finding where to start.

But one thing I did take away from it was this: when doing something you want to focus on (he meant the weekly review, but it holds true for anything), start where your focus is. So. Today, instead of working on the [community profile] whole_new_world fic - never mind that I couldn't get the most recent version to open - I worked on something I've been thinking about doing for a while now. It's turning out not all that great. On the other hand, it is the first draft and therefore is allowed to be crap.

Still, I hope I haven't lost that document, because I will be sad and frustrated and be tempted to give up (again). I'm not sure what the problem is, but it is a problem and I'm ready to kill this Chromebook over it.

So, yeah, that's what is going on with me. Mostly.
