The problem, defined

AZ and I have one of those sleek Ikea beds, which has these two little winged sidetables attached, where the alarm clock, glasses case and current bedside reading ends up. I've realized of late that this stack is a microcosm of my focus problem (or, perhaps, evidence of my interstitial feeding success).


Bedside Books

From the top:

"Virginia Woolf: A Biography" (Quentin Bell)
"Moby-Dick (Penguin Classics)" (Herman Melville)
"The Death and Life of Great American Cities (Vintage)" (Jane Jacobs)
"The Working Poor : Invisible in America (Vintage)" (David K. Shipler)
An Oikos Tree Catalog
"Getting Things Done : The Art of Stress-Free Productivity" (David Allen)
"Made in America" (Bill Bryson)
"Let Fury Have the Hour: The Punk Rock Politics of Joe Strummer" (Antonino D'Ambrosio)

All these are in varying degrees of completeness and focus, but all of them are in enough focus that they get touched periodically. Soon, some must roll off to completeness - they're beginning to feel the pull of gravity, regardless!

GTD buried center stack is something I find deeply humorous.

It is. Thankfully that's on a second or third read, plus ancilliary material previously blogged about here.
