Productivity Flowchart: 13 years in the making
The very very first article I tried to write for this blog (before it was even a blog) was called 'GeekBlock' waaay back in September 2003. The article was about a process for getting un-stuck. It has always amused & annoyed me that the article sits there unfinished.
Eventually I rewrote it as an article at YourFirstProduct.com with the humble title: 'A 3 Minute Guide to Fixing All Your Productivity Problems Forever.' But its non-linear structure was simply too tricky to follow. People who read it said they got lost about half way through.
Finally, I rewrote it as a tiny application; an interactive flowchart, a choose your own adventure, a tiny state machine. Now I'm happy with it. You can play with it here:
Some people have suggested I re-write it as an infographic (What is this, 2015?) but I like it as it is. It'll be due for a rewrite in another 13 years, around 2030, I guess.← Previous
