spoiling a nice walk

Occasionally I wonder if I should take up golf. Then I remember that it's a silly idea which I haven't got the time for, nevermind the skills. I move on.

Onto time management and organisation. Here I'm similarly faddy. On the whole I'm reasonably well organised but I swing from paper diaries and notebooks to PDAs of different flavours and back again. Now this week I've joined a team who all use a fancy American time management system. This really seems to work for them but they're a bit like Moonies about it all, lugging around these ginormous planners with them, like family bibles. Now don't get me wrong, I'm a big stationery fan. It's great for stress relief. When the going gets tough, the tough buy a pad of A4 quadrille and a strawberry scented gel pen from Smiths. However, these planners are so 80s.

So I think I'm gonna kill two birds with one stone and upgrade my PDA and then get the software version of this cultish lifestyle. This should simultaneously satisfy my desire for gadgets and stationery.
