I stumbled across a great resource online that seems remarkably consistent with the ideals of the 4HWW. Check out the post at Lifehack called “50 Tricks to Get Things Done Faster, Better, and More Easily“. Some of the ideas mentioned:
- Most Important Tasks (MITs): At the start of each day (or the night before) highlight the three or four most important things you have to do in the coming day.
- Big Rocks: The big projects you’re working on at any given moment. Set aside time every day or week to move your big rocks forward.
- Inbox Zero: Decide what to do with every email you get, the moment you read it. If there’s something you need to do, either do it or add it to your todo list and delete or file the email. If it’s something you need for reference, file it. Empty your email inbox every day.
Sounds like the ideals of dreamlining, eliminating, and automating, eh? 47 more ideas at the link!
