More wise words to ponder...

David Allen, the man who created the "Getting Things Done" concept continues to stress the importance of being organized. And he's not talking closets, but data, information, lists, and all the things that make us run through the day to reach our goals. and he makes his living as an evangelist for just that... keeping people focused on reaching goals.

David runs the enterprise, and is a major keynote speaker at tech and business conferences. The concept is as simple as making a list, but the benefits of doing so are far greater than organization. List-making clears your mind, so you can focus on what matters in the now. He also teams up with Evernote, the info-gathering note-taking tool. As keynoter at their recent conference, David was quoted with these nine inspiring words.....

"Your mind is for having ideas, not holding them."

Think about that, then use paper or your computer or smartphone to list everything you need/want to do and then clear your mind so you can choose the most meaningful ideas to work on now.
