Gone Fishin'


I'm not actively blogging here anymore. But if you got here because you were searching for something about bikes, you might want to check out my latest project, Vermont Goldsprints. In summer of 2014, I bought a used goldsprints racing setup and have made it a mission to get more bikes in more people's faces by putting on fun races in unexpected places. Come join me!


Braindump I

I've been reading a little bit or productivity stuff lately, mostly about the concept of Getting Things Done (GTD). GTD is an organizational system I don't know much about yet but I have a loose understanding that part of the idea is to get "open loops," that is, stuff that you need to get done but haven't gotten done yet, out of your system to help you focus on the task at hand. One way to get started is to write out a list of tasks.

I wrote out a bunch of stuff I've been meaning to get done and I did actually feel better just by getting it written down somewhere. All the energy I was using recycling all of these action items in my head can now be reduced to the brain power necessary to know that all that stuff is on a list I can get to and act on. I hope to continue this process, possibly posting a strikeout version as it grows and as tasks are completed. We'll see.
