Love this story - Student with Down syndrome helps basketball team to victory

I saw this story early this morning on a early morning NBC tv station. This video shows the student hit a shot early in the game. The tv story showed him hit one from the corner at the end of the game. I hope my PTI guys cover this in today's ESPN PTI show. Just an awesome human story.

Inbox is EMPTY !!!

At Lotusphere, I attended two sessions by Eric Mack and David Allen. BOF and general session were based on their world famous productivity work known as GTD or Getting Things Done. At last year's Lotusphere, I picked up the GTD book by David Allen. One thing that stuck with me from this years sessions was to clear your Inbox and have a "System" to do this. Now, I still have much to learn and practice but I've made some progress and it feels GOOD! David was very animated in his speaking and how great it feels to gain emotional control. Cleaning the inbox is one of those things. Basically, my system and goal is to deal with each line item and have a way to get it out.

First, if I can respond in 2 minutes - Do it and delete/file. (I use the Send and File button a lot)

Second - if it requires more time, add it to my ToDo database. (I use the Copy To New - To Do action button)

Third - if it's informational and something I want to have for later review, I'm adding it to my Personal Journal database. I created this database while sitting in the session with my laptop. I also used it as I went to sessions to record my notes on the Lotusphere sessions. Loving this tool and way to keep my notes and thoughts.

That's a quick note on how I'm getting to that clear mind David talks about. Now, I got three emails while I was writing this post so back to work. :)
