If you're interested in ways to get more productive, check out Chris Crouch's new group experiment, The 96 Minute Rule. I mentined the idea of breaking your time down into chunks in The best "chunking" time block - 96 Minutes? Here's the idea, from the experiment instructions:
Since the 80/20 rule states that we typically get 80% of our results from 20% of our efforts, it is a good idea to totally focus on important tasks for at least 20% of your workday (480 minutes x 20% = 96 minutes). This experiment is designed to lend structure and create a framework for implementing this theoretical idea.
Anyone want to give it a shot?
