Tuning in

I’ve been deluged more than ever lately in the office. So many request, so many double booked meetings, so many emails. I’ve been consiously trying to slow it down. A lot. But, it’s always a struggle. This article on "tuning in" from Slacker Manager hits describes the sensation of having too much going on. I was actually thinking about this phrase this morning, before I saw this post. I was listening to old Who songs, listening to "Gettin’ in Tune" off Who’s Next. It’s a love song of sorts, but I like the metaphor of tuning it in, like a radio dial, getting the right frequency.

More than anything, I like the image of cutting out the static, cutting the noise and dialing it in on the topic at hand. I’ve looked at the Zen books and tried a little meditation, but it hasn’t really clicked for me. I like the concept of mindfulness, and I’m very much looking forward to Merlin Mann’s write ups on 43folders.
