Blog Post: How a +Fitbit Encouraged My Daily Walks
I try to walk every day. Walking is the only regular form of exercise I get these days, because it is all that I have time for. Most health authorities agree on the many benefits of daily walks. For me, the most obvious benefit has been a peace of mind. On days that I walk, I feel better, ...

Going #Paperless 2.0: Searching in +Evernote , Part 1 of 4: "Who?"
I get lots of questions about how I use Evernote. One of the more frequent questions I get is how to find things in Evernote. Over the years I have accumulated more than 12000 notes in Evernote, and it is important that I can find any one of those notes quickly. Over the years, I have come up ...

I lived in Los Angeles from October 1983 through July 2002, just shy of 20 years. We moved to L.A. from Warwick, Rhode Island. The two places couldn't be more different. A multiplex theater—the only one in the entire state of Rhode Island—had recently been built. It was in that theater that I ...

When I decided to become a writer my biggest fear was that I'd never have an idea worth writing about. Experience taught me this was a needless fear. I found ideas everywhere. The trick is figuring out which ideas are worth pursuing. Acceptance. When I had an idea worth writing about my biggest ...

One of the things that attracted me to Evernote back in 2010 was its slogan, “Remember Everything.” Although I am not a canonical GTDer, I've read David Allen's book, and one important take away was getting stuff out of my head so that I didn't have to remember it. When I started to use Evernote ...

Blog Post: Writers Anxiety Dreams #writing  
Last night I had my first-ever writer's anxiety dream. Anxiety dreams are, as I understand it, pretty common. Many of us have woken in a sweat after dreaming we've arrived at a mid-term or final exam only to realize we haven't studied, or done any of the required homework.

Blog Post: The Perfect Storm
Last week's blizzard turned out to be a perfect storm. Schools closed on Thursday, January 21, a full day before the storm was supposed to start, thanks to a dusting of snow on Wednesday night that everyone seemed unprepared for. Schools closed again on Friday, even though the snow wasn't ...

The most devastating rejection I ever received came when I was a junior in college. I had been writing and submitting stories to magazines for about 9 months. I started a modest collection of form letter rejection slips, but already I thought of myself as a writer.

In fifth grade, at Cedar Hill Elementary school, I was taught how to read a newspaper. We were taught how to identify the lead story, what it meant when a story was “above the fold.” I even recall learning how to read the stock market pages in our math class. I don't know if they still teach ...
