The /now page

The /now page as explained by Derek Sivers:

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.

So earlier this year I added a /now page to my site: sivers.org/now

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.

And it’s that last bit—the public declaration of priorities—that I really love about this idea.

Just writing the page got me thinking. Am I working on the right stuff? Am I focusing my energy on the right areas?

So here’s my /now page. Let me know if you create one!

Update (01/11/15): nownownow.com is a directory of sites with a /now page. Makes for interesting reading.
