Now

I like the idea of a /now page, first proposed (as far as I know) by Derek Sivers. I think it’s a great way to immediately let people know what you’re doing. I also think it’s an even better way to reflect on your work and priorities in life on a somewhat regular basis. With that in mind, here’s what I’ve been focusing on lately:

  • Writing more.
  • Spending less time on social media.
  • Learning how to deal with anxiety and panic attacks.
  • Cutting out caffeine, alcohol, and sugary snacks.
  • Starting a reasonable exercise routine I can stick with. Same for meditation.
  • Relying more on paper and pencil than digital tools, for whatever I possibly can.
  • Refocusing on community over at Litmus.
  • Reconsidering my approach to my email newsletter.
  • Rekindling my love for the web, design, and coding.
  • Having fun with my family.
  • Being more open and honest with my wife, especially as we tackle our financial situation (insert Hamilton reference here).
  • Reading as much as I can, making it a priority over TV, movies, and the internet.

Curious how I get it all done? Here’s what I’m currently using.
