Why did you sign up for the Faith-Based Productivity community?
I recently moved to a new state and started a new job. I never realized how much I relied on systems I had created over the last few years until they were all upended by the changes. I’m trying to get organized to bring hopefully some calmness to my life that has been out of control lately. And I sometimes find it hard to apply some of the productivity advice I read online and am hoping to see the conversation here to help in real life application of the advice.
What is your church background?
I attend church weekly with my family but am otherwise not really involved much in it right now. If I am able to gain some margin in my life I’d like to get more involved and try to use the things I am good at to help out in whatever way I can.
What is your biggest struggle?
One is the aforementioned move. The second is that sometimes I will run down the rabbit hole of trying out new apps and systems rather than mastering the one that I have. My computer and Ipad are a graveyard of Apps only used a few times in a quest for that magic bullet. I realize that doesn’t exist but it often doesn’t stop me from trying. I’m trying to create a system I can commit to rather than jumping from system to system in a futile attempt to optimize.
What is your favorite book (and why)?
The Lord of the Rings (no productivity book is in my top 5)
Are you a Mac or a PC?
I’m a Mac
