Now that I'm starting to trust my system a little more, I'm getting good at capturing ideas rather than going and exploring them immediately. As GTD predicts, I have freed my mind of worries, and become far more creative as a result.
This is a problem.
I have captured 353 ideas in the past two weeks alone.
Mitch Hedberg, the late great standup comic, said it best:
I am having to do a lot more convincing lately, lest I spend my entire day writing ideas down instead of doing them. Does the flood ever stop?I sit at my hotel at night, I think of something that's funny, then I go get a pen and I write it down. Or if the pen's too far away, I have to convince myself that what I thought of ain't funny.
