Getting a NERDY hold on life and art

This weekend I've gotten back into the Getting Things Done saddle. This is a real life changing experience and a therapy of sorts for people who walk around feeling overwhelmed with all these ideas (both grandiose and small) in their head. This is me completely. Even ideas and goals turn into mental baggage if not tended to properly. This mental baggage blocks my creativity and productivity in a multitude of ways. Since I am one person with many hats to wear as an artistic business owner, I need a way to process my evolving To Do list of life. Then, I can be more productive, losing the guilt, remorse, etc of not feeling like I'm doing ENOUGH. I'm sure a lot of you can relate. I use the program Things and I'd love to hear some comments of anyone else using the same or similar system.

My initial brainstorming list of things I needed to get out of my head and into a tangible form was a whopping 152 items long. Needless to say, I feel better.

I was writing my to-do lists on the backs of envelopes. I just dowloaded Things and I can't wait to use it. How is it I had no idea this even existed?! P.S. I just found it, and I now love your shop!
