33 ways to boost your productivity

I'm surprised at how many of these I'm already doing (though some of the most effective, like the getting-up-stupidly-early, I fell out of the habit of while I was zombified).

Pop picks:
# "Timeboxing. Give yourself a fixed time period, like 30 minutes, to make a dent in a task. Don’t worry about how far you get. Just put in the time."

# "Cone of silence. Take a laptop with no network or WiFi access, and go to a place where you can work flat out without distractions"

# "Glittering prizes. Give yourself frequent rewards for achievement."

And best of all "#1: Nuke it! The most efficient way to get through a task is to delete it. If it doesn’t need to be done, get it off your to do list." this is the one that I tend to feel bad about though.
