The /now page

A /now page is created to provide visitors with an up-to-date overview of what you are doing, right now. Derek Sivers started the /now page movement, and here’s what he has said:

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.

Creating my /now page really gave me the opportunity to think about what it is that I am focusing on, what I should be prioritising and with a simply way to inform anybody wanting me to work with me. Because of that public declaration of priorities that Derek describes, it gives me reason to focus further.

Since starting the /now page movement, a website (nownownow.com) has been produced to publicise those who have taken to the idea, it’s a decent read.

Have you created your /now page yet?
