blog-therapy

I think that it might be possible to determine my mood and level of productivity by the frequency of posts on my blog. Of late I have been in a funk and obviously not posting much. It came to a head with a much needed (and much avoided) conversation last week. The public version is that I was confronted with some stuff in my life that I was trying very hard to avoid, but it is for the best. My motivation and organization skills are lacking and they need to be bolstered for me to be effective in ministry (especially in church planting).

I'm trying to use the method that Ike recommended, but I have yet to find a tool set that works for me. Google Calendar is too light (I can't create sub-sets for projects etc.), Outlook is too, I don't know, too Microsoft--I guess. I've never been successful using a day planner or a Palm Pilot to keep myself organized. I need a tool that is ubiquitous, transparent, and powerful. Any thoughts?

Let's do coffee this week some time. Email me with some open hours if you have some.

I've had on my list to-do's for a few weeks to write a "GTD for Church Planters" article up on Sanctus Cross. Ike beat me to the punch by like a year. I didn't get going with the process until Sarah was born, which was my "inciting event."

I feel your pain, man. Nothing in the world has made me more organized or productive than the chaos of church planting. I'll try to get some specifics posted soon and I'll email you a link...

I will post some links on my blog of what I do with my Moleskine. I don't know if it will be helpful to you or not, but you can check it at your leisure.
