Multitasking and its blunders

Too many things to do. Finally nothing done!

A bird in hand is worth two in the bush! How true this is, I understand now. For me the reality is::: 100 flying birds and 0 bullets in the gun --> FRUSTRATION!!!

Things I want to do:

  1. Map volume keys to answer and reject calls on N900, instead of the touch option.
  2. Automatically answer call in the time set, if headphones are plugged in, thereby saving the effort of picking the phone out of pocket..
  3. Django powered
  4. Start a food joint-"Ghar ka Khana"
  5. Write an application that helps me keep track of how many Thursday fasts have I successfully completed.
  6. Buy a second hand or not very costly bicycle..
  7. Understand the basic or internals of Linux.. Its been almost three years and I am still a noob when it comes to making use of it.. Troubleshooting still means to me--GOOGLE!! I am handicapped without a working net connection!
Many others...

(Any and all suggestions on how to's for the above list, would be highly appreciated)

The list goes on and on.. These tasks being not organised are running with & in the end and other small tasks like washing clothes, cleaning the room, cooking and earning a living, (the only good part is that atleast my work environment doesn't place me far from my tux.), taking up stupid freelancing projects.. eat up on the time I have.. Yeah, not to forget the time I kill in small talks..

 The big question is will I keep cribbing or break the important tasks into achievable chunks and put them to 'fg' ...

I just wish, I take control on most of the ways I spend the days, hours and minutes of my life.. and at the end I have no thoughts like "what if..", "if I had just done it.."

Its important I learn the most important thing in life - "Stay hungry, stay foolish and stay dirty!"
