Tim Ferriss's tips for productivity

  1. Manage your moods: If you start the day calm it's easy to get the right things done and focus.
  2. Don't check email in the morning.
  3. Before you try to do it faster, ask whether it should be done at all.
  4. Focus is nothing more than eliminating distractions.
  5. Have a personal system; most productive people have a routine.
  6. Define your goals for the day the night before.
