I’ve decided that I need to transfer all my information and tasks to a PDA. Why? I have a lot of reoccuring tasks now. Reports due every FRI. Reports due at the end of each month. Reports due at the beginning of the month. Reports due every other MON. Preparing all these reports is time consuming because upper management prefer to discuss these reports on PAPER!!!! Thus I need to transcribe the data on a printable format. On top of that, I have other projects and tasks that I need to work on.
Perhaps I don’t need a PDA. Paper planner will suffice but tasks that I can’t finish, I would need to rewrite and push out another week. Maybe my PDA is just a fancy electronic Post-It note?
My work week tend to be sporadic. One week, I am super busy with lots of meetings and action items. The next week, I am just doing busy work. This past weekend I was tinkering with my PDA– again. Why? It’s a question I have yet to figure out. I went back to ‘analog’ quite a bit already but once in a while, I would pull out my PDA and play around with it. Is it buyer’s remorse? I don’t know. I am trying to figure out how to best use it. There is no way I can move towards a smartphone. Been there, done that. The more I fiddle with different devices, the more I question how much more productive I am from the start. Am I getting from point A to point B in the shortest amount of time or am I getting lost faster?
Like my username say… it is just a syncing mind.
