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?
