My exploration of Neat & Simple Living has evolved into Agile Living, Work Design and Productivity! This blog is six years old and rather than move it, I decided to just leave it here and start fresh.
Has the vision changed?
My ultimate vision is the same...help people heal chronic disorganization, overwhelm and frustration and design a simpler life that fits. I'm still working with the same audience of highly creative, gifted, ADHD or ADHDish, highly technical, sensitive people who struggle with the stuckness of procrastination, clutter, disorganization, depression, anxiety and chronic overwhelm.
To embrace all of us without so many labels...I am experimenting with the terms Neurodiverse, Outliers and Tweakers. It just feels better to have a label that is not a "diagnosis" - it makes it easier to accept myself as I am, not as a set of labels that focus on "what's wrong" with me. Over-identifying with the labels reinforces them. Changing the label changes the way you see yourself. It's powerful stuff.
The Agile Life Design philosophy, mindset, skills and processes is the distillation of everything I've learned about what it takes to navigate the whitewaters of Life 3.0, cultivate personal agility in the age of "perpetual beta" and have a simpler, less pressured more satisfying life.
The agile approach to designing life, work, systems and relationships is a toolkit that WORKS. It doesn't "prescribe" it gives you the tools to "do it your way." As I'm working on resources to share the concepts and methods with the world, I'll be blogging the journey. If you would like to continue with me on this journey
Going forward...the only way to get new content by email is to subscribe to a convenient, single mailing list...no more subscribing to both a blog and a mailing list. YAY! : ) Thanks to my new email system, you'll have a lot more say in what kind of updates you want to receive from me as well!
UPDATE Feb. 2012
My dream of a single mailing list is not working out too well. My email system (Infusionsoft) is so painfully difficult to use that it's hindering me from easily communicating with you. So, I'm looking into reinstating a "news" blog. Will keep you posted.!
Wishing you much peace and an ever agile heart and mind,
