Derek Sivers came up with the idea of creating a /now page on your website. I heard about it from Eric Barfield. You can check mine out here. This page will give me an opportunity to keep others updated on what I am doing without spamming my blog subscribers or my friends on social media. It also adds a way to keep me motivated to start and finish more work. I will use it primarily for my work in music, but I will likely include significant areas of my personal life. Here is how Derek describes it.
People often ask me what I’m doing now.
Each time I would type out a reply, describing where I’m at, what I’m focused on, and what I’m not.
A simple link. Easy to remember. Easy to type.
It’s a nice reminder for myself, when I’m feeling unfocused. A public declaration of priorities.
(If I’m doing something that’s not on my list, is it something I want to add, or something I want to stop?)
It helps me say no, too. When I decline invitations, I point them to that page to let them know it’s not personal.
