I’m not usually a fan of mindmaps, but this one from Australian company, Learning Fundamentals, is a great summary of tricks to stay focused and productive. It was designed with school kids in mind, but applies to adult knowledge workers too. My favorite tips are:
- work in focused bursts
- create rituals
- check email at set points in the day
