Scheduling myself 
23rd-Mar-2011 01:11 pm
I have a wee small filter I used to use for this, but in case anyone is curious. I actually wrote out my schedule for once, on the Post-It Principle: if your schedule for the day fits on a Post-It, it is not horribly unreasonable. (If you need three Post-Its, evaluate the decisions you have made and have a cuppa tea.) This is not a usual schedule, as I'm usually at work half the day. Plus this one is scaled towards the sedentary because I'm still sick.

LiveJournal interview
BARCC e-mail
Medium-sized My Empire for Ashes edits (which I've been dragging my feet about)
edited up to page 15, adding over 1K in requested elaborations; stopping now because the kid is due home.
New bio for ChiZine
Interview-ish thing for Jaclyn Friedman's new book
Check out and give opinion on someone's poetry
Edit someone's short story (I have already done this one in my head)
E-mail editor six kajillion questions about art (cover, interior, trading cards)
Answer 5 backlogged e-mails

Things have piled up shamefully.

Other data: Temp is 99.2 (baseline temp is 97); peak airflow is 300 (up from 225 on Monday, but I was really hoping for at least 400 by now).

Huh. My to-do list is always longer than a post-it. (But not always limited to that day.)

Also, yay you for the friedman thing.

Oh, the Post-It principle is a one-day thing. My overall to-do list is frightening in its length and breadth.

I am generally curious; it is by such power that I am resurrected each time.

Off to search for my Post-Its now...

It helps! It's a visible indicator of "you may be attempting to do too much today".

I think it is. . . telling. . . that my reaction is to immediately dismiss this with "don't be silly, my list would NEVER fit on a post-it"

Yes but I have post-it notes that are the size of a notebook page. This is less than helpful. :) Glad to see you are feeling better.

Out of curiosity (because why else would I ask?) is there any known reason why your baseline temp is so low?

None that I know of...
