The last few days have been extremely hectic at the office for me. I want to get hold of things, but there just are too many threads to look after. I need some system of sorts – I know prioritizing and time-bounding the tasks has helped me in the past. Plus I have come across so many useful systems for getting more done.

But I, of course, still need a system that works for me. I am starting small – stitch a list of tasks, merge a few to shorten it, and finally get them lined up to be ticked off. My only concern at this point is I am adding a lot more tasks to the list than I am getting off of it.

My hope was things would settle down in a couple of days. I am afraid it’s not going to correct on its own. Tells me something is inherently wrong with how I am managing stuff.
