Float Like A Butterfly, Sting Like A Bee.

Yesterday I discussed the free productivity tools available at 37signals. Just as important as great tools is the technique for using them to increase your productivity. I came across a wonderful post today on To-Done. Author Bob Walsh outlines a concept called "Butterfly Stroke Productivity." This involves beginning every day by identifying 2 or 3 things you need to get done. You then set aside blocks of 60 to 120 minutes to work specifically on these important items - without interruption. In the time between these blocks, you "come up for air" like a swimmer using the butterfly stroke. During your breathing time, you can deal with less important items, like e-mail, voice-mail or reading the Dayton AMA blog. The goal of this technique is to get into a state of flow, where you are totally engaged in a project. This concept for getting things done is simply brilliant.Butterfly Stroke Productivity
