If you were reading my blog here, the blog has now moved. I have relocated the blog to www.matthixson.me. I am working on posting more regularly as there is a lot going on with me and I would like you get your opinions on them. Please join me over there or you can click here to subscribe to the blog. I am still experimenting on using Posterous for posting everyday pictures of things I find interesting, which seems to be what most people are using it for. The content from www.completefulfillment.blogspot.com has been imported to my new blog at www.matthixson.me and will be discontinued. This blog is being moved because I am now using the squarespace platform which is much easier to design and use than blogger.matt

Things are lining up for an even more epic battle between Microsoft and Google. Between MS Windows and Google Chrome OS to MS SharePoint and Google Wave to Office and Google Docs. I love competition – it brings the best products to the surface.
Balance is a tough thing for me. That is why I started thinking and talking about Complete Fulfillment (part 1 & part 2). As the week gets into full swing I get engaged at work and come home to not enough time to assess what I need to do there. For years I have read and used all sorts of organization and productivity books and tools such as Franklin Covey and GTD. I have settled on GTD for the past 4-5 years and have spent that time trying to implement it – over and over and over. What I am really doing is trying to over compensate for my low prudence. When I can make myself do it the weekly review is a great level set for me. I spent the 2 hours on Sunday reviewing all of the projects that I have taken on and where they are. As usual, my appetite for things to do and reality are probably not in line but this week I am trying something new. I have taken each section of Complete Fulfillment and tried to pick one achievable item to get done by next Sunday when I do my next weekly review. I have tried to pick most of these outside of work so I will need to go back and make sure that work is actually doable so that I am focused on the right things when I am there but work never seems to be the area lacking attention. I am taking this approach in an attempt to make sure that there are not parts of my life that are left behind. We will see how the week goes – I am tired of writing posts about how poorly this concept has gone for me. Time for some progress.
