Then he got a look on his face as if he were thinking. Daniel had learned, in his almost seventy years, not to expect much of people who got such looks, because thinking really was something one ought to do all the time. [N. Stephenson, The System of the World, p. 168]

Productivity hints

Good practices:

→ Always check the synchronization of workfiles at the beginning and end of work sessions.

→ Always update the time card at the end of days.

→ Always preface documents that are not CVSed with a history list.

→ Periodically refactor work items for the next few weeks (in notepad).

→ Take the shuttle.

→ Use powerful e-mail techniques.

→ Write a new blog item.


→ Follow 43folders and perhaps adopt KGTD

Robert Frost

A considerable speck


A speck that would have been beneath my sight
On any but a paper sheet so white
Set off across what I had written there.
And I had idly poised my pen in air
To stop it with a period of ink,
When something strange about it made me think.
This was no dust speck by my breathing blown,
But unmistakably a living mite
With inclinations it could call its own.
It paused as with suspicion of my pen,
And then came racing wildly on again
To where my manuscript was not yet dry;
Then paused again and either drank or smelt --
With loathing, for again it turned to fly.
Plainly with an intelligence I dealt.
It seemed too tiny to have room for feet,
Yet must have had a set of the complete
To express how much it didn't want to die.
It ran with terror and with cunning crept.
It faltered: I could see it hesitate;
Then in the middle of the open sheet
Cower down in desperation to accept
Whatever I accorded it of fate.
I have none of the tenderer-than-thou
Collectivistic regimenting love
With which the modern world is being swept.
But this poor microscopic item now!
Since it was nothing I knew evil of
I let it lie there till I hope it slept.

I have a mind myself and recognize
Mind when I meet with it in any guise.
No one can know how glad I am to find
On any sheet the least display of mind.

(Robert Frost; ‘A Witness Tree’, 1942)
