Habit #1: If you can do something in 2 minutes or less, go ahead and do it now.

Habit #2: Always ask yourself — can this conversation happen asynchronously?

  • you get more time to research and respond with confidence
  • interactions are more efficient, because both parties are forced to clearly state their thoughts, and you can cut to the chase without appearing rude
  • Automattic (the Wordpress company) is famous for interviewing candidates over Skype chat, and hiring them without having even heard their voice. If that’s how you work, why not interview that way?

Habit #3: Listen to podcasts and audiobooks while you exercise

Better the habit you can stick with

Extremely productive people do all kinds of eccentric things to save time. Albert Einstein and Steve Jobs wore the exact same outfit every day so they didn’t have to think about what they wanted to wear.
