A question

In this age of multi-tasking is there room for a man who stays focused on one thing at a time? My wife can balance work, mothering, wiving, all together, but me, I get discombobulated when asked to do more than one thing at a time! I need to finish what I am doing right then or else I will forget where I was in completing the task at hand. The food is burned, the dog pees on the floor, the newspaper turns to trash in the sun. I have multi-tasking envy, I want to be able to juggle it all I want in the air. I want to be able to be good at all I am asked to be, but inevitably I drop the ball, I leave tasks undone, I forget, I rush, I panic! One thing, one day at a time , this is my quest. To be able to complete my to do list and do good work in all the arena's of my circus life.

This is all because you are from Mars and Linda is from Venus. I discovered that Su too is from Venus. After searching for my original birth certificate, I found it and now know the truth, in very small print: Mars.

It's a guy thing! You poets have your creativity. Accept and love yourself for who you are and the anxiety will ease itself.

Have you thought about a new time management system?

I checked out the Alan Mark 43 folders thing and Getting Things done and seems to have some merit.
Will get back to you with further research.
