I guess as I'm on the first Personal Productivity Show, I'd better write something productive today!
I'm reading the follow up book to David Allen's Getting Things Done, Ready for Anything, and I love this quote,
One of the most effective ways to spark a dynamic vision is to clean your garage. Don't get me wrong. Writing a great strategic plan and creating a clean well-ordered garage are very different activities. One requires a high-level focus and willingness to see beyond the conditioning and details of current reality. The other requires an often brutal hand-to-hand combat with those details. Yet there is a strange and wondrous relationship between the two.......The mundane is not a substitute for the sublime. It's just a secret passageway to it.
