Don't just live in the world

Data overload

November 3rd, 2016 | Posted by Amy Boughner in Personal

I have many, many systems in my life right now. There are so many things I want to do, and so many things I need to do and I use a lot of different tools to keep track of them all. The problem is that it’s all really inefficient.

My journal, my daily habits app, my checklists – paper and electronic – my calendars – paper and electronic. I like having things in more than one place so that I can double check. Triple check. Write it long form and short hand.

Lists and lists and more lists. I don’t know how to keep it all in order and have it make sense.

I have goals and tasks and chores and to-dos and appointments.

I’m concerned that I spend so much time focused on writing them down that I don’t get enough things actually done.

But it also often feels like nothing will get done if I don’t write it down so I can check it off. Unless I write it down when I’ve already done it just so I can check it off, but everybody does that.
