Hey Everyone –
Jordan over @ WorshipTrench let me know pretty quickly that I’m getting the “contexts” idea at Vitalist all wrong. Apparently, my contexts were still too broad. I’ve not modified them yet and haven’t even touched it since our last post, so you can see how well I’m progressing in this whole GTD System (Get Things Done). I did pick up the “Getting Things Done” audiobook on iTunes by David Allen, so guru of GTD. If I can force myself to listen to his monotone voice I just may learn something.
Back to time tracking, though – in my quest to find something “web 2.0” for time management and tracking (or to create a business that will build one) I got some great leads from a couple of programmers who spoke with. I thought about starting a powerful portal that will be GTD-friendly and will let you track and audit your time, but didn’t want to “reinvent the wheel”.
Ryan over at ArtofMission.Com offered some great insights. We both agreed that I may have a marketable business idea but I’m not sure I’m ready to jump into it. In the meantime, he recommended two sites that are available for time audits. Neither of these implement some of the additional GTD features and “communication features” (I won’t disclose what those are about just now!) that I’d like to see with an incredible “all-in-one” portal, but they seem promising.
One thing is for sure … living life on the go, in a hurry, with more to do than time allows … that’s not the way to live. It’s not God’s way. I’m reading a great book called The Life You’ve Always Wanted: Spiritual Disciplines for Ordinary People by John Ortberg .. and one of those disciplines is slowing down … one of the quotes in the book is “You must ruthlessly eliminate hurry from your day”. Another great quote is “Hurry is the great enemy of spiritual life in our day”.
