Personal Project Management

There will never be enough time on earth to keep up with everything you might feel obligated to do. Therefore, it's appropriate to lower your expectations.

Regarding reading of new information, think of it as dipping your ladle into a flowing stream. If you don't pick it up, let it flow by. You can probably retrieve it downstream if you have a need.

Don't let others call the shots. If you decide what you want to do, you control your life. If you let others -- or whim -- run things, you'll be overwhelmed.

On this book, I've been bouncing around gathering new material. I've read a lot of books and talked with a number of people. I have more people to talk with but I truly need to build the exoskeleton of the manuscript and begin completing the pieces. Enough looking sideways!
