David's recent blog entry, about creeping demons, (http://www.davidco.com/blogs/david/a...ping_demo.html) caused me to revisit the key elements of technology & methodology of getting things done and the need for balance between them.
I've posted some thoughts about this today on my blog. http://www.ericmackonline.com/ica/bl...y-productivity
As a technologist, I enjoy working with new software, productivity applications, and gadgets. I also enjoy creating and deploying these technologies for my clients. There's a danger in doing this that I must constantly remind myself of: if you get too close to the technology, you just might forget about the need for the methodology. This forum is probably full of people who know what I'm talking about.
I have to remind myself and my clients that ownership of the aforementioned productivity software or gadgets does not in anyway guarantee productivity. David's certainly been good about keeping a clear perspective on this.
I thought I would start this discussion: Do you find it hard to make a distinction between the technology and the methodology that you use to get your work done?
