I’ve hinted at my attempts to Get Organised using a (carefully edited) array of gadgets, both paper and virtual. Here’s a great perspective on this from the ever-lucid Communicatrix.
I wish—oh, how I wish—that there was one answer in one book, and that all I had to do was find that book. Instead, the maps to your map are in the books. Look at that person’s journey, and see what you can find in her struggles or his mishaps or their lightbulb moments that makes you tingly. The truth comes at us sideways, usually, and when we least expect it. Our job, I increasingly believe, is to prime ourselves for reception…and reflection…and synthesis.
