Tom uses several clever techniques with OneNote,  including the admonition to "start before you open OneNote". After reading through his blog post about OneNote  for the third time, I have started pruning some of my in-hand processes so I can get a sense of closure by moving content from one section to another. My goal has become to refine ideas into long form content through a process of moving ideas through three stages. Two of those stages would be separate sections in my "unfiled" notebook. The third part of the process enters into a separate notebook where I pull the well-formed ideas into Scrivener for publication.
I LOST THE LAST TRACE of O2-Ireland on my phones late in the morning of 7 March 2015 and it feels like a friend has left the stage. I got a lot of technical help and customer support from O2-Ireland ever since they took the Esat Digifone customer base over more than eight years ago.
The new partnership with Three Ireland has already boosted my data speeds on my handsets to 4G in the rural parts of County Tipperary where I'm based. That's nice to see. But having a post-paid account is more about after-sales service to me.
I'M TAKING lessons I've learned from 28 days of writing to Ireland's annual CESI.ie conference in Galway this weekend. A warm Irish welcome for anyone who wants to follow the #cesicon conversation.

I LEARN MORE through the serendipity of sharing than I do through directed channels. During the past month, I bumped into very valuable professional tips coming from people contributing to the #28DaysOfWriting meme in various places.  Importantly, I bumped into this content without having to join a channel, download a specific app or use a password. The content flowed from an RSS feed. 
Knowing that, I am trying to develop a workflow that prioritizes my workflow at a glance when I turn over my Lumia screen. I have tried doing that during #28DaysOfWriting and now offer a sample screenshot. I will create an audio clip to give a deeper dive into the screen view of my 28 day workflow.

Vint Cerf, considered by some to be the Father of the Internet, offered thoughts about digital vellum last week.  His basic message is we are not taking care to save important items in formats that people in the 22nd century will be able to read and hear. He thinks we should try to keep our most precious memories in archival paper form. I have a bottle of India ink for that express purpose.
I LEARN MORE ABOUT ACTIVE ENGAGEMENT by watching others who share their stories. That's excellent storyteller Evelyn O'Connor in the photo who proves my point.
I also try to improve my personal method of engagement by following the advice of cognitive psychologists who work with the Hanen Method. Hanen teach parents how to improve communication with their children. A lot of the Hanen Method applies to online social engagement too, as I discuss in the embedded audio clip.
FEBRUARY RETURNS DAYLIGHT earlier in the day and where we live in County Tipperary, it often means lovely colours streaking across the sky like in the photo. I feel motivated and productive under those colors.

It also helps that my body clock syncs naturally to these daybreak hours. What remains is to reward myself with the first cup of coffee only after I review the day's task list and calendar agenda. I think I will toggle over to another screen and do that now.

MY 20 MINUTE interval training has started, thanks to a combination of factors that I mention in the my audio clip embedded below. In brief, this means I will attack my to-do list in 20 minute bursts, followed by 10 minutes of outside air.
I will report back with results next month. I know the proof lies in practising a routine for three consecutive weeks.
