Wanted to share an article that appeared in the Wall Street Journal’s online edition last week concerning productivity. The article notes the top three productivity methods as ranked by a Lifehacker survey. What I noticed in the article, no matter what method one chooses, one needs to commit to a method for a long enough period so that the method becomes habit. Additionally, the concept of multi-tasking is over-rated. Focus on one item for a period of time (20-25 minutes) and then move onto the next project.
Good read, hope you enjoy:
