Productivity Systems

Things That Do Work for Me
  • archiving email as soon as I've replied or acted on it
    • enables me to forget about it
  • ticketing systems for software development
    • enables me to assign things to others, document, etc.
    • reluctant to use ticketing in non-work life, however
  • calendars and reminders
    • lots of reminders, the day before and then two hours before appointments seems to work well, since that gives me enough time to get anywhere in the Lower Mainland
    • invitations work, both for me to invite someone and someone inviting me
    • checking the calendar before responding to invitations enables me to say yes or no with confidence
