I have spent this week feeling overwhelmed.  Too many inputs, too many ideas, too many ‘things’.   I have exhausted all of my tactics, switching off distractions, knuckling down, caffeinating and relaxing.

There are too many open loops. 

Then I came across this quote:

Life punishes the vague wish and rewards the specific ask. – Tim Ferriss

I realise that my situation is of my own doing. If I increase the specificity of my ask, close down some of the questions, make the decisions for myself – then the loop gets closed.    If I think specifically about email, rule #4 of the Email Charter is in play: Quash Open-Ended Questions.

I feel less overwhelmed now.  It is in my hands.
