🚀 Music between tasks may increase productivity.

Although listening to music while working may have negative consequences, listening to music in between tasks might improve your mental performance and capacity to concentrate for lengthy periods of time.
🎗️ Music familiarity is best for focus

When we listen to familiar music rather than unknown music, certain parts of our brain that elicit powerful emotions and boost focus become more active.

It's interesting how many young professionals think all they need is to travel abroad and all their challenges will be resolved.

I am sorry to inform you that it will most likely be the beginning of your challenges.

"The Checklist Manifesto" by Atul Gawande (@Atul_Gawande) makes a powerful case for developing and using checklists to avoid common mistakes.

Here are some of my takeaways:
@Atul_Gawande 📝 In the modern world we have incredible knowledge—so much that it is unmanageable. No one person can carry out the complexity of our work from memory alone. But it's possible if the necessary knowledge is translated into a simple, usable, systematic form: a checklist.
@Atul_Gawande 📝 Failure can occur because of ignorance (unknown unknowns) or ineptitude (unknown knowns). Ineptitude is when we have the knowledge but don't apply it—when skyscrapers are built wrong and fall down, for instance. Checklists can help us fix ineptitude.

Here are 5 tips that can help you increase your productivity and focus more as a developer. 🧵👇 #developer #tips #focus #productivity
1️⃣. For many developers, the key to increased productivity and focus is to establish and maintain a regular routine. This can be difficult to do, especially if you work from home or have a flexible schedule.
2️⃣. Another helpful tip is to break down your work into smaller, more manageable tasks. Trying to tackle a large project all at once can be overwhelming and lead to lost focus.

1) True learning is not about reading a lot of books, checking out many Tweetorials or listening to a lot of podcasts.

If that was so, everybody would have been 'successful' and not creating content about 'success'.
2) True learning is based on something I called the retention percentage --> the percentage of your knowledge that you can actually use in your day to day life.
3) I have applied this retention ratio to medicine since the day I started --> 10 years back in 2022.

Whatever you learn, until and unless you are comfortable with it --> that you can use it in day to day clinical practice --> you have not really learnt it.

At @Portable, I’m one of our resident tools nerds and #productivity geeks. As someone with #ADHD (inattentive type), this is a crucial thing to be. I thought I’d share a recent path of discovery I’ve been on, including the tools I’m using and the calibration I’ve been working on.
It’s worth starting with context. I’m a manager in an agency. My time needs to be tracked. I have a lot of tasks flying at me. Prioritisation the most important things and making time for them are critical. And it needs to be easy to do, and relatively automated where possible.
It starts with my use of @reclaimai. It’s a clever, automated scheduling tool that weighs up relative priority, urgency and duration of my tasks and my regular habits and slots them around the meetings and set events in my calendar. I started out using it very granularly.

Do you want to get more work done in less time?

And do you want to focus on more IMPORTANT work?

Here are three methods *I* use for that ⬇️

(You can apply them anywhere—but #ToolsforThought like @RoamResearch, @obsdmd, @amplenote, @logseq, etc., are where I like to work.)
Method 1: Clusters and Rhythm reduce Transitions

Transitions are where #Productivity goes to die. We get distracted, we follow tangents.

(1) Cluster related tasks

- Tasks that are related by location, project, co-worker, etc., are easier to tick off one right after the other
(2) Standardize work startups & shutdowns

- When every piece of work has a predictable starting and ending routine, your work finds its Rhythm. The routines shouldn’t be long or complicated, just consistent and reliable.

Once you’ve got your Rhythm going, transitions fade away

Hard to find creative time?

Here's a #app that helps me reduce mental clutter and find hours each week. Wife and I use @basecamp to organize our daily lives.

Using it can change your life:
@basecamp Grocery list in To Dos:

- Build your To Do list and share it.
- When you run out of an item just open basecamp and add it
- Browse completed to do's to make restocking fast
- Add meals you love w/ ingredients. Make shopping even faster

Your grocery list is always ready
@basecamp Use the Message Board to think together about big decisions

- Don't try to remember an idea, type it out
- Improve thinking and express yourself well
- Like a structured email thread, you can review how the conversation progressed
- Remember HOW and WHY you reached a conclusion

5 Ways To Boost Your Productivity And Get To Deep Work In 30 Minutes or Less.

#Productivity
1. Make your work blocks longer.

You've probably heard about the pomodoro technique, and it's excellent.

But it's better to make the work blocks longer, why?
To have a bigger chance of reaching flow.
I prefer 45 minutes of work and a 10 minutes break.
2. Keep a water bottle beside you.

Without good hydration, you can't focus.

And what if you get thirsty while working?
You'd have to leave your work to drink water...
So just keep a bottle beside you!

So I've been hearing some good things about @nextjs for some time, and seeing only enhanced it. Also I'm bored, and (arguably?) have some free time, so I'm going to try to remake my blog (with 1 whole post) in next.js just for fun. Let's #Frontend!
To give some context, my only exposure to frontend development is from developing a couple #AndroidDev apps 3 years ago, and I have no experience with JS and hardly any familiarity with HTML/CSS (except making my @firefox look sexier with custom CSS) #BackendDevFrontends

A list of productivity tools that I use every single day without fail and really like. A lot of these cost money but I genuinely think these are some of my better software investments. I'm very bad at organisation so without these tools I would be lost

#Software #Productivity
Note: I am a full time academic, so my job involves reading new research, developing ideas for research, running experiments, teaching students etc. I also need something that supports my hobbies (video making + bug bounty, which requires project management+note taking)
Plan (getplan.co) - Is it buggy, yes. But imo this is the best organisation app I've ever used. It combines a planner with multiple todo lists with project management. You can then drag individual items from your todo list and put them on your calendar.

I tried 37 #productivity "hacks" so you don't have to.

Here are the top 5 that help me run my 8 figure ecom biz (#4 is my personal fav)

Water.
Sleep.

Hack #1 - Standing desk

I use the uplift desk and probably spend 30-50% of my time working standing up.

Sitting all day just makes me feel so damn lazy so said fuck it and got me one

Science says that the most successful people on earth follow some of the below mentioned things if not for all.

You could implement some of the things below to make you successful as well.

🧵👇
// Building a routine

Having no routine or structure is so much more draining mentally, physically, and emotionally than any routine could ever be.
Once you build a routine :

- You impose a certain structure which builds progressive habits and creates momentum that will carry you on the days even when you don't have the strength to.

- Your resilience on motivation and willpower will be reduced.

Higher #import duties to tackle the #BOP problem is the wrong advice. It won't deliver on the intended objective. Why? 🧵👇 brecorder.com/news/40168085/…
1\ The #CAD is the result of a Saving/Investment imbalance. The sustainable solution to the #CAD entails policies that increase #saving.
2\ #Import duties might be a patch that in the short run curbs imports, but they will curb #exports too. Why? B/C they increase the profitability to sell at home, so firms shift from export to domestic markets. Import duties are implicit #export taxes. They won't reduce the CAD. Image
