As much as I love computers and gadgets, nove of them have ever replaced my need for yellow legal pads. (although I do find myself using OmniFocus more and more for my projects & assorted lists...there is still something about writing stuff out on paper.) I am constantly making list, crossing items off and then starting a new list...the recycling bin in my office is mostly crumpled up sheets of yellow paper. As an INTJ (Myers-Briggs) I am always thinking in terms of strategies & systems. It doesn't matter if it is at church, at home, planning a trip, or playing a game...my brain is naturally wired to figure out how something works and then work the system.
It's hard to believe how much work it is to get ready for some time off. Elizabeth & I spent most of last night finding rental cars online, looking for hotels or houses to rent for the week or so we'll be in the southern part of Ireland, and then we fall into bed about 2 hours later than we should have.
