Routines are boring, but efficient. I love them because of it.

Making A Big Career Transition
  • The first step is to ask yourself why you want to change your career and risk a secure job that is your bread and butter.
  • Find ways to get a feel for your new position to better understand the new role you are considering.
  • Be honest with yourself and think with an objective mind.
  • Keep the long-term vision in mind, thinking ahead about what could happen in the next 20 or 30 years with your decision.
  • Write your future autobiography in advance, with as much detailing as possible.
  • How we spend our days is how our life turns out to be, and each hour counts.

Stashed ideas


Cal Newport on better managing time
  • To-Do lists are useless. Schedule everything.
  • Assume you’re going home at 5:30, then plan your day backwards.
  • Make a plan for the entire week
  • Do very few things, but be awesome at them.
  • Less shallow work, focus on the deep stuff.
The Key To Productivity Is Rest

Getting caught daily in the endless cycles of productive work, we move towards extending and optimizing our productivity, not once thinking of stopping and taking a break.

The most overlooked key to productivity is to pause and rest, something that feels counterintuitive.

  • Task management. This one is most commonly taught and includes systems like Getting Things Done.
  • Knowledge management. This is embodied in systems like productivity educator Tiago Forte's Building a Second Brain.
  • Priority management. Without this category, the first two will fail. You need to have your tasks and resources organized, but also know how to prioritize them.

Time is our precious resource. It is perishable, it is irreplaceable, and it cannot be saved. It can only be reallocated from activities of lower value to activities of higher value.

Time management refers to how you schedule and organize your time for different activities.
