first_imgIn 2005, the Bay Area’s KPFA’s Grateful Dead Hour, the nationwide, weekly radio show hosted by David Gans, turned twenty-years old. To celebrate this important anniversary, the show hosted a sixteen-hour Grateful Dead musical marathon to benefit the station. One special moment from this public radio fundraiser, which traditionally may not be listeners favorite time of year, was Dark Star Orchestra’s appearance on the show.Dark Star Orchestra was in town for their show later that evening at the Great American Music Hall. The band decided to stop by and join in the festivities, laying down an all acoustic set that was played live to fans tuning into the Bay Area’s KPFA 94.1 FM and Fresno’s KFCF 88.1 FM. You can listen to this wonderfully recorded set below with phenomenal acoustics, courtesy of the DSO webmaster on archive.org.Setlist: Dark Star Orchestra | KPFA Studio | Berkeley, CA | 2/19/2005Set One: Deep Elm, Dark Hollow, Dire Wolf, Monkey and Engineer, So Many Roads, Cassidy, You Ain’t Woman Enough, Jack A Roe, Ripplelast_img read more

41% of items on the average to-do list are never finished

first_imgby: Dan BergerDo you like to use to-do lists? I do, but like most people, I rarely complete all my list items. However, I don’t feel that bad about it – at least not now:  According to an article in Forbes, 41 percent of the items on the average to-do list are never finished.That means that to-do lists often turn into more of a source of stress than satisfaction. “It’s no wonder we feel so overwhelmed in the day, but fight insomnia at night,” Forbes notes.Also – when you pick items to finish from the list, are you picking the most important items or just focusing on what can get done fast? That can leave important issues – like regular check-ups with your doctor – unaddressed because of that never-ending list of more “urgent” (but less important) tasks.Forbes contributor Kevin Kruse says that in his more than 200 interviews with billionaires, Olympic athletes and entrepreneurs, no one has mentioned a to-do list. Instead, he says, they “live and work from their calendar.” Calendars show you how much time you’re spending on each issue, allow you to prioritize and keep things balanced. When you’re not trying to race through a list but are working to balance your week, you might find it helps you focus on what you need – and what your team needs. continue reading » 7SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more
