All about the productivity …

Just a quick one … I’ve got stuff to do. But I’m all about the productivity at the moment and wanted to share this great anecdote from Jerry Seinfeld (via lifehacker). Software developer Brad Isaac got some great advice from Jerry Seinfeld:

 … He told me to get a big wall calendar that has a whole year on one page and hang it on a prominent wall. The next step was to get a big red magic marker.

He said for each day that I do my task of writing, I get to put a big red X over that day. “After a few days you’ll have a chain. Just keep at it and the chain will grow longer every day. You’ll like seeing that chain, especially when you get a few weeks under your belt. Your only job next is to not break the chain.”

I love the visual reminder … and so, my wall now has a big wall calendar on it, with just one red X so far – but, as I continue with my task of writing, I’ll be attempting not to break that chain.  Read the whole thing here.

(And whilst we’re on the subject … this post from Nathan Barry has a lot of good content, and a really great free e-book called the Productivity Manifesto)
