Ten minutes a day – Alex Allain – Medium
> In early 2012, I published Jumping into C++. According to the calendar, I wrote the book between January 2010 and January 2012, but it took me less than 200 hours of work. I know this because for most of the time I worked on the book, I kept careful track of my time spent. Between 1/4/2010 and 9/29/2011 (when I stopped keeping track), I’d worked on the book for almost exactly 156 hours and written over 70,000 words.

> How, exactly, did I manage to write a book in this short a time? I had one simple rule: I had to work on the book for just ten minutes, every day, no excuses. Ever.

> Keep your hands on the keyboard and boost your productivity! Shortcat is a keyboard tool for Mac OS X that lets you "click" buttons and control your apps with a few keystrokes. Think of it as Spotlight for the user interface.

Looks like a nice addition to macOS.

Traveling with Me is a Nightmare – Rands in Repose
> Subtract five minutes from the boarding time. That is when I will return to the gate. Back-track to a desirable eating establishment. Sit at the bar and order a gin and tonic. Airports always ask if you want a double and I always do.

How to be fully alert minutes after waking
> I use a SAD light as soon as I wake up to go from groggy and useless to fully alert in a couple of minutes. Most mornings I'm sitting at my desk and working within 7 minutes of waking up. It's one hell of a productivity hack.

How One Silicon Valley C.E.O. Masters Work-Life Balance - The New York Times
> Chris O'Neill, of Evernote, makes a list every night, stays fit, blocks out his workweek by theme and listens to his children.

One or two days a week with your kid isn't a work-life balance.

Wordpress's owner is closing its San Francisco office because its employees never show up
> Automattic has always given its 550 employees the choice of working remotely; the San Francisco space was an optional co-working space, spokesman Mark Armstrong said. The company maintains similar offices in Cape Town, South Africa, and outside Portland, Maine, and gives employees a $250-a-month stipend it they want to use commercial co-working offices elsewhere. And if they'd rather work at Starbucks, Automattic will pay for their coffee.

Noisli is my favorite white noise app. Their website and native apps work wonderfully and take the edge off when I want to hear coffeeshop meets thunderstorm in the forest next to the ocean. It works.

One Googler’s take on managing your time
I have been trying to follow a system like this for a while but it's slightly harder with clients:

> Aim to do the following:

> *Monday:* Energy ramps out of the weekend — schedule low demand tasks like setting goals, organizing and planning.
> *Tuesday, Wednesday:* Peak of energy — tackle the most difficult problems, write, brainstorm, schedule your Make Time.
> *Thursday:* Energy begins to ebb — schedule meetings, especially when consensus is needed.
> *Friday:* Lowest energy level — do open-ended work, long-term planning and relationship building.

Maximize Your Team's Time: Ways to Avoid Meeting Burnout
Meetings suck. I'm quite happy with using a Trello based approach to meetings. Every team member may add to the meeting list and we archive or move actionable items to the appropriate place as we go.
