Can dictation software help focus and stop multitasking-and get more done?

Suw Charman wrote on Corante earlier this month that multitasking is as bad as procrastination.  Essentially we really all know we can’t truly multitask…
I’m not sure that this is really new news, though. Who, deep down, hasn’t pretty much known that multi-tasking is a con? We’ve known for years about the state of flow, where […]

I met with a new friend today. He is the Vice President for Business Development at a bank. He told me he made a decision about six months ago. His decision?

Three Minute Management Course (humour)

Thanks to Lorraine and her mum for these:

Lesson 1:
A man is getting into the shower just as his wife is finishing up her shower, when the doorbell rings. The wife quickly wraps herself in a towel and runs downstairs. When she opens the door, there stands Bob, the next-door neighbor. Before […]

Let this be a reminder, check ALL the cables when something isn’t working

Got this from Chris Pirillo today:

Oh I have so been there.  I’ve done it myself, I’ve seen tons of other people do it.  Sometimes the cable looks like it’s in, but just isn’t seated all the way.  So, take it from Chris and I, check all the cables.  Then check them again.

Hat tip to Mark

Updates, get your updates here…

One of the most important things you can do to keep your computer, and applications, safe and happy is to keep it updated.  Back in the day, when the Internet was young and I was doing tech support, finding updates wasn’t fun or easy.  We pretty much had to do a lot of the work […]

Resistance is futile: Reflection time

One of the things I decided to do for myself the year before last was to attend one of those GTD: Roadmap seminars from David Allen. The place was packed with people from all over the country coming into the seminar — I was fortunate in that I was able to simply take a bus […]
