I spent a long over night doing computing

I have now spent close to 12 hours at my computers. I did end up with some DVD backups for last year's Desktop folders from my eMac and also my Macbook. I made five copies and will send two copies off to my father's house in case our apartment burns down or we are evicted and loose our belongings.

I also put an hour into creating a membership records excel file for our radical union. But dealing with other members, as they woke up today and also started to send emails was problematic.

I ended the morning editting and then reading some entries on Wikipedia about schizophrenia and following that through to stress management, then time management where I am now. I also read a little about How to Live on 24 Hours a Day (1910), written by Arnold Bennett. I generally practice this philosophy he recommends of reading for self improvement, and reading about work and making time for this reading. I had started this way back in the late 1970's and early 1980's, reading great literature and then continuing to read history and nature books in the 1980's and then reading web pages and Usenet throughout the middle and late 1990's. I do wake up early to better myself before work.

Most of what I post here is my figuring out time management. I am flexible doing some task management in my head and some by notes or software. I think I need to study more about to-do-lists and also time management such as Pareto analysis. I also need to manage stress with positive thinking and uncluttering. So these are my recover goals area at the moment.
