My Stream is an almost daily dump of observations, quotes, travels, and culture.

New Year's Day was relaxing, but 2nd January saw me initiate the big push. It takes six months of steady work to organise this conference, but 80% of todos can only be todone within a hellishly compacted last three weeks.

I was back at my desk with a resolution not to stress out too soon. The very first task spiralled into an array of micro tasks, and each of those into a lost count of barely trackable nano tasks.

I can't focus on one thing because all the possible things are simmering. I must swiftly and calmly guide each new piece of confirmed information into its right place within a particular note or list or system or tool.

Three more weeks of this. I desperately hope it's worth it.
