The new Final Version system is beginning to show its real capability as more and more things get sorted. Today I succeeded in shifting the most enormous work load while experiencing absolutely no resistance.
Getting the basic stuff under control goes without question. There’s not been the slightest doubt that my email, paper and phone calls would remain cleared all day, that my office would remain tidy, that the household chores would be done right on time, that comments on this website wouldl be read and answered. That’s just the light relief.
What is hugely more impressive is the progress that I’ve made on more serious projects. Things are really beginning to move, although it’s early days yet on most of them.
In spite of this, the system is running too fast at the moment because the workload isn’t heavy enough. One of the great advantages of the Final Version is that you can precisely balance your workload to the system. It does this in a much more sophisticated way than Do It Tomorrow did. This is a bit of a new experience for me - I haven’t had a time management system before which tells me that I’m not giving it enough work!
Tomorrow I’m away for most of the day on a visit to the Houses of Parliament so I’ll be interested to see how the system deals with a very short work time.
