Kill Your To Do List — CJ Chilvers
But first, we must admit the truth. The calendar doesn’t lie. It’s brutal about how much time you actually have in a day to complete your projects. It’s honest.

Possible futures | Derek Sivers
I made a folder on my computer called “Possible Futures”.

Neat idea. May have to implement a similar thing.

He was counting on news to travel slow! That, weirdly, gives me hope.”
There is so much insight about the repetition of history in this entire interview. Read the whole thing.
