10 Laws of Productivity

Interesting productivity tips from 99U, a web magazine destined to creative professionals. They’ve identified a series of laws based on routines and practices of people they call “serial idea executors”. Many of these tips can apply to writers – and some even come from writers such as Haruki Murakami. Here are the rules – read the full post on 99U.

  1. Break the seal of hesitation
  2. Start small
  3. Prototype, prototype, prototype
  4. Create simple objectives for projects, and revisit them regularly
  5. Work on your project a little bit each day
  6. Develop a routine
  7. Break big, long-term projects into smaller chinks or “phases”
  8. Prune away superfluous meetings (and their attendees)
  9. Practice saying “no”
  10. Remember that rules – even productivity rules – are made to be broken
