My favorite productivity hack

  1. Create a list of tasks. You should be able to each task in less than 25 minutes.
  2. Adjust the total number of tasks so that, if you’re only doing the tasks (and not answering email in between), you could be done with it all before lunch. You’re goal is now to get it all done before lunch.
  3. Get a Pomodoro timer if you don’t have it already. Start the timer, and do the first task. When you’re done, take a a break of 5-10 minutes. Repeat. Think of your lunch as the reward.
