Emails and reading lists
Bill Gates hacks his email with a larger three-monitor display area. One set is on the emails he's working on, and the last screen for a regular desktop. This way, he can multi-task more successfully.
He goes on an annual Think Week to a cabin in the woods to completely unplug. He takes with reams of documents and books. This way he gets a year's worth of reading and thinking in a week. He also goes over his past year and plans for the future.
"Never look back unless you are planning to go that way." - Henry David Thoreau
