43 Folders is an old (by Internet standards, anyway) web site run by Merlin Mann. (No, I don’t know why he’s named after a wizard.) The name refers to the 43 folders that are used as part of the Getting Things Done system. I like to read the site’s offerings once in a while for some inspiration. As part of my ultimate to-do system quest, I took some time to browse some of Merlin’s older posts.
This one, the (10+2)*5 procrastination hack caught my eye. It’s not a solution for the quest I’m on, but it is a useful tool to get things moving from the to-do list to the done list.
