Agility Trial Report, con't

Here is a great photo of Splash at the agility trial last weekend, taken by photographer Dave Mills. We did the whole course in 23 seconds and change. As you can see, Splash is at full speed coming out of the tunnel and looking to me for his next direction. We had a awesome time! Thanks WAG!

Self-affirmation and agility report

First, a small brag. Last Sunday, Splash and I entered a "Tunnelers" run in the local NADAC trial. Splash adores tunnels. We had a great time, and we not only qualified, we got first place.

Anyway, I ended the last week feeling a bit depressed that I cannot seem to make any progress on my work to-do list. I'm taking a little criticism about it too. After thinking about this most of the weekend, I decided to just write down everything I do each day in a log. At the very least, it's something I can look over each evening and realize it was not a completely wasted day.

I've also resolved to read two books, and have ordered them from Amazon:

  1. Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity by David Allen
    I heard this author speaking on NPR last weekend and he was pretty convincing.

  2. The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich by Timothy Ferriss

I'll write book reports when I finish them. But for now, my "to-do: DONE" list is making me feel very warm and happy. :)
