David Allen (Getting Things Done)

"Folks, can we hear it for sloth, indolence, and procrastination!!!!!???" (Thunderous applause and raucous cheers.)

That's how I'm starting many of my seminars these days. And it always gets thunderous applause and raucous cheers. I think it hits a nerve.

Why? Because few people have many good reference points for self-forgiveness and a sense of humor in this world of increasingly too much to do.

One of the most subtle ways the better aspect of us retreats is in busy-ness. Losing perspective in trying to control everything, finish it all, fix it all -- all at once.

Getting things done out of frustration instead of inspiration. Helping out of compulsion, not compassion. (Which kind of gardening did you do yesterday?)
