Who Moved My Brain?

Merlin Mann Time And AttentionNow and again, the personal process of ‘getting things done’ goes from being (relatively) orderly and flowing to wildly chaotic with corresponding results! When this happens it’s often best to go back to basics to figure out how to get back on track.

There’s a very nice presentation on this by the ever-excellent Merlin Mann: ‘Who Moved My Brain? Revaluing Time And Attention’ .

In summary, he recommends introducing and using five patterns that tend to work in practice:

  1. Identify Leaks
  2. Govern Access
  3. Minimize Notifications
  4. Work In Dashes
  5. Renegotiate

Well worth looking at and thinking hard about, it could make a big, big difference!
