This is a shameless plug for GTDinbox, a plugin for Firefox and Gmail that helps you apply some of the ideas in Getting Things Done by Dave Allen. I am interfacing with Gmail constantly, so this is a dream come true. Check it out at gtdgmail.com. Organization is best served by a tool that you will actually use, so find one that works for you.



wake up when my alarm clock goes off
Work sucks

But you have to go. No stumbling into lecture in the real world. Put the alarm clock far from the bed, or even in the bathroom.



take better care of my teeth
better safe than sorry

When your dentist notices something, it’s in your best interest to take care of it soon. I had a molar cavity in October that I elected to put off, but the existing amalgam broke off last week. Going back in, I came millimeters short of needing a root canal to correct the rather advanced decay. Dental problems tend to get more severe, painful, and expensive (a root canal w/o insurance costs ~$700 US, not including the crown). I’m in the mood to take a more cautious approach. Happy flossing.
