I need to just stop going to my LIS 460:
Technology and the School Library Media Center class. Every time I go there I find like, four or five new shiny things to take home with me and
increase my productivity.
As an example, I left class at 4PM and decided to post in LJ about it when I got home.
98 minutes after getting home, I pried myself away from the shiny long enough to write about it.Ta-Da List
: to-do lists. I'm trying desperately to organize my life, because I have no discipline. I've found that to-do lists help me, but I can rarely convince myself to maintain daily logs with to-do lists for more than two weeks, and if I write my to-do lists in anything less impressive, I never find them again, or never get around to visiting them. This is a very simple and shiny program that will help me.Joe's Goals
: DISCIPLINE. I add goals (write Last Dreamer every day; don't snack often) and every time I make a goal or break a goal, I put a little mark on the calendar! I hope looking at all those glaring red X's will keep me from eating my third snack of the evening, even if I'm only snacking on fruit. Very simple, very shiny.
And the wealth that is Google
: Online word processing. For storing RP logs, in-progress writing, and notes. Eee!Google Spreadsheets
spreadsheets. Please, Kay, keep track of your spending. You want to so badly. Find the discipline. *adds a log to joe's goals!*Google Reader
: Best online RSS aggregator I've encountered yet. However, this has eaten the last 98 minutes of my life. On it I have discovered:Edit for awesome:
Also, insults used to be cooler.

I'm still staring at Google Reader, but on the bright side, I'm supporting an exceedingly right-minded organization.
The NY Times reports Google.org is "aiming to develop an extremely fuel-efficient, plug-in hybrid car engine that runs on ethanol, electricity and gasoline". Current goal: 100mpg.
