I’d Known at 20
Days always
fill up.
2.
Only plan for 4-5 hours of real
work per day.
- David Heinemeier Hansson, 37 Signals
“
Work more when you’re in the zone.
Relax when you’re not.
3.
It's normal to have days where
you just can't work and days
where you'll work 12 hours
straight.
- Alain Paquin, Whatsnexx
“
Respect your time and
make it respected.
4.
Your time is $1000/hour, and
you need to act accordingly.
- Jason Cohen, @asmartbear
“
Stop multi-tasking.
It merely kills your focus.
5.
Answer emails
Work on a big presentation
Call clients
Feel productive
Answer emails Work on a big presentation Call clients Feel productive
Multi-tasking like a big shot
Single-threading and home at 5pm
Set up a work routine and stick to it.
Your body will adapt.
6.
We're always more focused
and productive with limited time.
7.
lease
don’t quit
your day
job.
Work is the best way to get working.
Start with short tasks to get the ball rolling.
8.
Send email
to design
team
Create
business
plan
Organize
home office
Start here
Work iteratively. Expectations to
do things perfectly are stifling.
9.
Doing is better than perfect.
- Facebook company motto
“
More work hours doesn’t mean more
productivity. Use constraints as opportunities.
10.
Separate brainless and
strategic tasks to become more productive.
11.
Separate thinking and
execution to execute faster
and think better.
- Sol Tanguay, Imarklab
“
Organize meetings early during the day.
Time leading up to an event is often wasted.
12.
Work Try to work really try...
10am 12 noon 2 pm 4 pm
REALLY
Important
Meeting
Group meetings and communication (email or
phone) to create blocks of uninterrupted work.
13.
A single meeting can blow a
whole afternoon, by breaking
it into two pieces each too
small to do anything hard in.
- Paul Graham, YCombinator
“
Keep the same context throughout the day.
Switching between projects/clients is unproductive.
14.
Work around procrastination. Procrastinate
between intense sprints of work (Pomodoro).
15.
16.
Break the unreasonable down
into little reasonable chunks. A
big goal is only achieved when
every little thing that you do
everyday, gets you closer to
that goal.
- Maren Kate, Escaping the 9 to 5
“
No 2 tasks ever hold the same importance. Always
prioritize. Be really careful with to-do lists...
17.
Buy milk
Open foreign bank account
Perform open-heart surgery
Clean desk
18.
Only ever work on the thing
that will have the biggest
impact.
“
- Jason Cohen, @asmartbear
Always know the one thing
you really need to get done during the day.
Break tasks into hour increments. Long tasks are
hard to get into; feels like it all needs to get done.
19.
20.
If something can be done 80%
as well by someone else,
delegate!
“
- John C. Maxwell, Author
Delegate and learn to
make use of other people.
21.
Yesterday’s home runs don’t
win today’s games.“
- Babe Ruth, Hall of Fame Baseball player
Turn the page on yesterday.
Only ever think about today and tomorrow.
Set deadlines for everything.
Don't let tasks go on indefinitely.
22.
Set end dates for intense or stressful activities.
Everything ends at some point.
23.
24.
Get a reminder app for
everything. Do not trust your
own brain for your memory.
- Julien Smith, Author
“
Always
take notes.
25.
Write down anything that
distracts you- google searches,
random thoughts, new ideas,
whatever. The point is, if you
write them down, they’ll stop
bubbling up when you’re in the
zone.
- Steven Corona, Twitpic
“
