In looking for tools that might help take distractions off my plate, I came across this article & video, and thought you might get something out of it. So many people talk about how busy they are, not having enough time, feeling spread thin, scattered, or being generally overwhelmed by how much they need to get done in a single day.
Unfortunately, the way we work collaboratively, allows for tons of interruptions in our creative work. As a result, I'm on the hunt for some strategies or tools that we all might get something out of. It's an extension of operation 'time recovery', which is making me think more and more about distraction, potency, and creativity.
It was interesting to watch this video, because it mentions carving out half-days or even full days for projects, a strategy I've been honing in on as of late.
I'd be curious as to what your reaction is to this, and I'll get back to you once I find some things that can help us declutter, avoid our ADD, and find chunks of time to create the things we so desperately want to see come to life.
In addition to this video below, you can read up on one Google employees take on managing your time. It's a good one.
