Over the last few weeks it has become apparent that I seem busier than ever, but have been getting less done. I’d already determined the culprits (email, social networking sites, politics, television, etc.), so I decided to follow some of the suggestions in the book The 4-Hour Workweek, by Timothy Ferris.

  • Media Fast (no news shows, websites, or newspapers) for one week
  • Cut email down to checking it 2x a day, and unsubscribed to dozens of lists
  • Choosing 2 priorities that must be accomplished each day
  • Ignoring the unimportant!
