Just do it? But HOW? 24 productivity experiments I tried, plus a QS time management recap | Quantified Self: “Interruption log. Because interruptions are a common productivity drain, I thought I’d try an experiment of simply tracking them. I recorded who interrupted me, when it happened, the topic, and how long it lasted. I did this for a week and then studied it for patterns that I could use for prevention. By far the most common type was internal: my frequent multasking, esp. checking email (more below). I found the simple act of tracking was an embarrassing eye-opener, and I’ve since been able to manage it via further specific experiments.”
