Perpetual Flow

According to Wikipedia, 

"Flow is the mental state of operation in which a person performing an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and enjoyment in the process of the activity."

As an art major at USC, it's important for me to be able to achieve this state of mind so I can make the most of my time here. (Because this school is expensive as hell.) Therefore my primary goal is to improve my workflow so that I can focus on a specific task without any distractions, which would hopefully bring up my productivity.

I'm surprised that I even manage to get any work done.

The Skillshare website was being weird with me, so I couldn't update this right away. I believe I have collected all of my open loops, although it wouldn't surprise me if I missed some.

I downloaded Things for Mac and already have a copy of Evernote on my computer. I'm not quite sure what to do with Evernote yet, so I'm just dumping everything in Things. Might buy the iPhone version, but not sure yet. I'm currently out of state, so I'm not going to spring on a physical collection container just yet. Hopefully this all works out.

So it's definitely been a while. I'm still recording any type of task I could think of in Things while I'm still in front of the computer. I'm pretty much done with Step 1 of Phase 2 in this Project. I'm having a hard time categorizing my tasks in Things, but I'll be going through those one more time after rewatching the video. Needless to say, I have waaaayy to many tasks in Things at the moment. (31 in my inbox alone after sorting them out between now and Someday.) 

I've finally cleared out my entire email inbox though. I use Apple Mail because it's really easy for me to keep track of my 3 separate email accounts on there. At the moment, I have my USC college email, my Yahoo! email that I've had since about 4th grade, and a Gmail. I'm working on making my Gmail into a personal email.

I originally had over 1,000 emails in my 3 separate email inboxes, so you can imagine how much sorting out I had to do. Probably should have taken a screenshot of the "Before"

All clean!
