10 Life Hacks For Better Productivity SimonGuest,Neudesic

10.Where isyourtime going? » Analyze your calendar - pie chart of your time » Use RescueTime » How much time doing work vs. Facebook?

9. GTD Methodology » Learn GTD (Getting Things Done) Methodology from David Allen » Most people do not have a system for managing their workload » Many people still carry everything in their head

8.Task Organization » Many different task lists around » Experiment with the ones that work with you, and learn to trust it » My favorite is a variant of TaskPaper

7. Capture Ideasatthe RightTime » The best ideas come at some really random times -- Shower, in bed, at grocery store, etc. » Pen and paper by the bed - I thought of this presentation at 5.20am on Sunday! » Email/call myself a task when I'm on the road

6.ApplyAgile Principlestoyour workweek » Weekly sprint to plan week » Daily "standup" to check task list » Regular backlog grooming

5. Learnto Delegate » If there is nothing to learn, and your participation is non critical, delegate » Not direct order, but maybe an opportunity for someone more junior to learn? » Delegate using SMART technique -- Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Timely

4. UseTools More Efficiently » What are your mundane tasks? » Common tools are so powerful, but underused most of the time » Learn keyboard shortcuts - how much can you do without touching the mouse?

3. Structureyour day » When do you work your best? Morning or Afternoon? -- Structure the day accordingly » Dedicated time for catching up with news/email -- Then shut it all off while you work » For creative/development time, make sure you take breaks -- Pomodoro Technique

2.What'syour hourlyrate? » Set yourself an hourly rate based on your income level » For example, $50 per hour » Would you pay $100 to attend that 2 hour meeting?

1. Mind/BodyConnection » The mind cannot function effectively without good health -- Sleep: Minimum of 8 hours -- Exercise: Everyday -- Food: Diet that improves your mental performance » Don't be frightened to prioritize your health -- Avoid the mindset that 80 hour work week makes you a hero
