I found this online this week – a very concise way of controlling attention and being productive. I’m trying to craft a similar approach at my office, but I’m restricted by (1) constant interruption and (2) punishment for not constantly checking your email. And then I also commit the sins of reading RSS feeds and Twitter posts too often; I’m trying to confine those actions to scheduled times during the day, as I DO need to keep up with security information.
And I am a MS user (and an anti-Google bigot), so I use different technologies, but his overall process is valid, and there are many substitutions for the software packages he mentions.
Oh, there is some minor profanity here – so it’s PG-13 rated.
