I am going somewhere with this. I'm setting the stage for typically serious post-travel overwhelm. Whenever this happens, I apply the GTD work flow model to processing my stuff. I'm now wresting with last 100 emails (out of thousands) and a small stack of papers, 33 draft blog topic ideas, and a business plan to revise.
So, what does all of this have to do with using a 24" LCD Panel as a tool for visual project mapping?
Sometimes, tactile project planning tools simply work better than digital tools - especially when your Tablet PC is in the shop for dust removal.*
*After a fantastic 4-day turnaround on my first Tecra repair from Toshiba, I decided to send in my Tablet PC to have them clean the dust (which they neglected to do on the first visit). It's been gone 2 weeks and is not expected back for at least another week or so. This gave me a great excuse to rediscover post-it notes as a visual planning tool.
OK, Michael. Take your best shot.
