I woke up this morning, read email, and went "Ohhhh boy. I have so much to do and I am so behind."
My old habit of dealing with this is randomly flailing in the direction of any sort of productive task, because I used to be able to power through everything by running like a maniac. However, the list of possible things I can do has since exceeded even my capacity to worksprint. Therefore, I am instead trying to remember the difference between "urgent" and "important" (thanks, Greg), and so with that in mind here is my Crisp List O' Deliverables for the morning. It's 9am as I type this and I've just finished breakfast - my plane out of California leaves a bit past 9pm.
- Expense reports for Q1
- Finish everything related to the Fedora Scholarship
- Finish all Marketing deliverables for Fedora 13
...at which point I will come back to the house, eat lunch, read a book and breathe a bit, and figure out what to do with POSSE, and what else remains on my plate. I know one of the things is formally transitioning Marketing leadership over, but I want to complete all our F13 deliverables for Marketing before that happens, so... there is a deadline.
I say "come back to the house" because I have decided that Huntington Beach Pier, which is within walking distance of the couch I slept on last night, will be a lovely place to spend the morning knocking off those three things.
I am off.
 I sorta halfway finished all of these over Friday and in bits throughout the weekend, so it's really powering through the last 20-30% for each task that actually needs to get done. I need to work on Finishing Things.
 Turns out my aunt has this book on investing that looks interesting, so I reckon I'll take a few minutes and zoom through that while I finish the leftover kare-kare.
