The messier my office is,

the more my work life is out of control.

I should have a rule. If I have more than three piles, say no to any new request that I can say no to. Then I may miss all the good opportunities. The more piles I have, the more tense I feel about getting stuff done–leading to more getting stuff done, and more new research ideas. I know that sounds bad to the GTD people. But maybe I need piles combined with some control?
