My productivity hacks
- TODO high priority - I tend to have 1 to 3 things on this list. I time box my activities so this list is the actions that I will rotate through. I usually work in 60 to 90 minute sprints, but for deep coding this may be 3 or 4 hours.
- TODO open - everything that I would like to do, but a lot of stuff on this list gets deleted with no further effort (the all important decisions on what not to do).
- TODO done - instead of deleting completed actions on "TODO high priority" I cut the text and paste the action text to the top of this list.
I place no limits on the time I spend on meditation, hiking, kayaking, cooking + meals, and reading good books. I try to limit watching streaming media to a few shows and also movies I watch with my wife and/or friends.
