Jason Fried has a radical theory of working: that the office isn’t a good place to do it. In his talk, he lays out the main problems (call them the M&Ms) and offers three suggestions to make work work. (Filmed at TEDxMidWest.)
The middle of September is upon us and the work is starting to pile up. How do you keep that motivation? It’s incredibly easy to mark your pages, set the work aside to do later, and forget about its deadline coming up in a couple days. Getting off to a productive start in the morning is a fantastic way to keep meeting your goals. By the time lunch rolls around you’ve already accomplished so much. Then you have the freedom to work on more assignments (since it’s still so early) or to do other things you’ve been putting off that week. HackCollege has curated the 6 best tasks students should make a habit of before noon.
