Hi Cindy,

Found you on UBC. First time visitor. That looks like a cool project! I liked your Quirky list and that it included more than just yourself. Funny! :)

You and I are speaking the same language. Someone (Tess Marshall) tweeted your link so I had to check it out. I love this. I love the idea of NAMING my inner critic and of having a civil discussion with her on a range of issues she seems to be concerned about. Great stuff!

Hi Ethan,

 

This is great. I have heard about this bread that you can bake like that and I wanted to try it. What a great marketing angle for a book, huh? Simple enough to learn to bake bread, but to learn to bake it in five minutes a day? Genius.

I just discovered Pomodoro. It is really cool! You set a timer for 25 minutes, choosing one task to complete in that time. Then, when the timer goes off - you stop what you are doing and take a five minute (timed) break. I worked really hard all day but felt like I got to slack off the whole day because I kept taking all these breaks! It felt great and I had plenty of energy to keep plugging along.

Hello Jonathan,

This list is great and inspiring and I can't share what my workspace looks like because there isn't really one that I claim as such and that needs to change! You are right. I hope you are enjoying Portland! Sounds like a cool spot.

Hi Ethan,

I just found your blog so I am really curious about what you decided to do? Are you doing the big trip? Wow. This is awesome. Not just because doing a bike trip like that is one of those life things I have always wanted to do, but that you are so on the verge of actually doing it. That is super cool. Good luck to you in your big decision. Is your day job the kind of job where you can "work from home" - maybe bring a laptop along and do a couple of hours of work in the evenings after you are done riding so they can let you go? Sometimes it just takes some ingenuity to get where we want to go... and compromise.

@ethanwaldman I love that it takes all of my various email addresses and organizes them in the same place!

@ethanwaldman @amyputkonen agreed. I will definitely be unplugging a few times this summer for camping trips! Love it!

These are some excellent ideas. I have used Gmail for years and love it for its organizational prowess!

Right with you! I often have wondered, being an extremely obsessed techno geek myself, if this is telling me something?! :)
