Orderly Chaotic

Orderly Chaotic

In the middle of well organised chaos. How to flow within chaos.

Hello Friends,
This part of my life I am living now is hectic. Doing more than anyone can do if they are in my shoes. Fortunately, I was prepared. The tools I were exploring and learning to use were here to help me to cope up with the busy-ness. Now I am reaping the benefit of the sharpened axe (digital tools I am using and optimised workflows). My hectic life couldn’t stop me from writing and sending this museletter to my readers.
How did I manage to be productive in chaos? Simple, I had a productivity system and personal knowledge management system in place which does the most of work. Second most important thing is, capturing things. Capturing tasks, capturing notes, capturing ideas and putting it in to a assembly line like process (that’s your system) and then planning for desired outcomes based on your goals and purpose is the crux concept of my system. I am handling multiple projects than ever before. I only can spend less time in each project, at the same time I have to make the project move every week. To stop me doing unwanted or things that gives low impact to the desired result, I made sure I read ‘my purpose’ in each project I hand. Rather than making decisions based on “Goals”, I started to decide what to do, when to do and how to do for a project based on my Role and purpose in the project. This gave me a clarity and to my surprise the clarity sustained for long time. Now I can delegate most jobs without much fear or doubt.
I will be explaining my method clearly in another blog article…

Measuring the quality of a writing ethically.
Hey, I am also writing in Medium (tharan.medium.com), and a copy of free versions of this Museletter also be published there.
Read… & Reading…
Books: Now reading M.K. Gandhi’s “The experiments with truth”, an autobiography of Mahatma Gandhi. Resuming to read “Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus” by John Gray and “Art of War” by Sun Tzu is in the line next.

Quotes from what I read
Systems Thinking is only of expertise. I found these content (originally oriented to developing better UX) to be too worthy to understand how a system should be. It explains the behaviour of a system very well. Kudos to the author, Arturo Rios.

New productivity apps I am trying
Drafts | Where Text Starts
Drafts is a “Quick Capture” text editor with powerful functionality to take out the text to any other form or to any other app or service. I’ve tried this app few years ago(when Evernote used to be snappier to capture text), now I am gave it another try and happened to like it already. I am planning to write an article about Drafts (app) next. Unfortunately its not for any other platform than iOS, iPad OS and Mac.
Refind | Where News Starts
Most of my friends wonder how I get to read more news every day. Honestly I read less, I read from quality source and I read highlights first to judge whether I should read the article fully or to glance. When I was using Feedly, the feeds of news link are like flood and 95% of content is not targeted or curated by machines (in case of other news app) or by recency (in case of Google News). Refind clears the path, by only feeding the links that community added and recommends. That’s great. I highly recommend Refind to anyone who wants to be updated in their field.
Finally, to the end. Did you get any value from my creations, then share this to your friends. Or reply/comment to this issue of Museletter. Wishing you a great weekend ahead!
