Make Time

Make Time is a book on productivity, it talks about how to make effective use of your time. It suggest a method that involves picking a highlight for the day, one high-priority goal. There can be different frameworks on how too choose, for instance:

  • What’s the most pressing thing I have to do today?
  • At the end of the day, which one will bring me the most satisfaction?
  • When I reflect on today, what will bring me the most joy?

There’s a lot of emphasis on being able to focus:

  • Become a morning person
  • Delete infinity pools from your phone
  • Logout from social apps
  • Clear your home screen
  • Don’t check your phone first thing in the morning
  • Use a vacation timer to turn off WiFi at night
  • Optimize your caffeine intake to avoid caffeine crash: If you wake up at 7 am
    • Have first cup between 9:30-10:30
    • Have lust cup between 1:30-2:30
  • Drink green tea
  • Do the 7 minute workout
  • Prefer Dark chocolate for sugar (but watch out, it has caffeine)

Overall, a quick, fun read with lots of ideas to try out!
