6 Common Work Habits that Sabotage Your Productivity - http://www.lifehack.org/article...
"We all have our weekday morning routines. You roll into the office a little before 9 am (or a little after, if traffic was really bad), settle in at your desk, maybe grab a cup of coffee around 9:30 or 10, check Twitter and Facebook, and then dive in to your inbox. And while it’s obvious that your time playing Farmville or reading Kanye’s latest tweet is going to hamper your productivity, you might be surprised to learn what other common work habits can sabotage your productivity." - Kol Tregaskes from Bookmarklet

"You may think that you should be grateful for your job, and you should. But when it comes down to it, you’re not going to hit a ceiling of happiness and purpose if you’re not working for yourself. (I know there may be a few exceptions, but let’s be honest, they are exceptions.)" - Kol Tregaskes

How to Start Enjoying Life Again - Dumb Little Man - http://bit.ly/5EiGW
"No matter how perfect everything can feel and how awesome life can seem at times, things rarely stay that way. Let's face it, now and then we all experience the low points, and for some people, those low points can last a lot longer than anything else. You can tell just by looking at statistics which show that tens of thousands of people commit suicide each year around the world; for some people these low points just become unbearable." - Kol Tregaskes from Bookmarklet
"I think there are some key aspects which can help people start to really enjoy life again, and make the most of the opportunities on this planet. In this post I want to look at what I think those aspects are and how you can incorporate them into your life." - Kol Tregaskes

Impressing Your Boss with Time Management 2.0 - Stepcase Lifehack - http://bit.ly/2sE1y
"You know you are in a bit of trouble when your boss tells you that you need to improve your time management skills. In times past, when training budgets were somewhat normal the solution was easy. Sign up for a class in New Jersey, make sure that the boss is involved in the planning, offer a one page post-course “summary,” and email a thank-you for the life-changing opportunity. Simple." - Kol Tregaskes from Bookmarklet
"Nowadays, however, the boss is likely to deny the cost of the tuition, flight, hotel and meal expenses while still expecting to see some improvement. No-one has time to read one of those books filled with “The 1001 Crazy Tips of Abnormally Anal, Obsessive People.” What is an already over-worked professional to do? Making the task more difficult is the fact that time actually cannot be... more... - Kol Tregaskes

Are You Effective Or Just Efficient? - Dumb Little Man - http://bit.ly/3BRcF
"A lot of popular time management or "life hacking" advice is aimed at making you ever more efficient. Perhaps you’re constantly reading lists of Firefox plugins, concerned that you might be missing out on some essential time-saving tool. Maybe you reorganize your email filing system each week so that everything is impeccably classified. But have you ever stopped to ask yourself – Am I being effective, or just being efficient?" - Kol Tregaskes from Bookmarklet

9 Lists To Keep Updated, and Keep Handy - Stepcase Lifehack - http://bit.ly/RjfhB
"I bought a Moleskine notebook a long time ago, and for a while it got zero use. My productivity system is totally digital and Web-based, as is my personal journal. I bought the Moleskine because it looked awesome, and because so many other people found it useful." - Kol Tregaskes from Bookmarklet
"The Moleskine, though, made its way into my pocket or backpack all the time, because of one simple use I found for it: a list manager. Not a list of things to do, or people to call - different lists. The Moleskine is my perfect list-manager, and that’s all I use it for." - Kol Tregaskes
"That said, I’ve also discovered how useful it is to keep a small number of lists both updated and handy at all times, for a whole variety of uses. Here are nine lists that can be enormously helpful to all of us, if kept both current and accessible. Keep them wherever you like (for me, a Moleskine), but make sure you keep them." - Kol Tregaskes

"Whether it be getting out of debt, running a marathon, taking a much needed holiday or simply getting in shape, we all have goals. Yet whilst we do have them, and we would love to achieve them, life or other priorities sometimes get in the way." - Kol Tregaskes from Bookmarklet
Kol Tregaskes

I’m going to let you know how I achieve all those big goals that so many people think they can’t do. You can’t just wait around for the perfect opportunity because more likely than not, it will never come. Create your own opportunities and you will get what you want." - Kol Tregaskes

"For far too long I turned a blind eye to many indicators telling me that it was time to take control of my health. I was convinced that I was simply too busy to worry about fitness and wrote off any comments or signs telling me otherwise. However, I ignored these wake up calls to my detriment. If you feel burdened about some area of your life that needs changing, heeding these warnings may be the best thing you could do." - Kol Tregaskes

9 Places to Always Keep Pen and Paper Handy - Stepcase Lifehack
"Wouldn’t it be nice if ideas came to you when they were supposed to? You sit down, decide to be creative, and boom: you’re creative. The juices flow, the ideas are endless, and your brilliance just runneth over onto the page. Unfortunately, that’s not the case. For most of us, our creative and inspirational moments come at random, unpredictable, and often totally inconvenient times. There’s no rhyme or reason to it, and that great idea could strike at any moment." - Kol Tregaskes from Bookmarklet
"That said, the best thing we can do is be prepared at all times for that game-changing idea. I recently decided to take stock of where I am when ideas hit me, and what I’m doing; this has allowed me to figure out where I need to have ways to record ideas, thoughts, and other general moments of brilliance that come when I least expect them." - Kol Tregaskes
"At the end of my search I found nine places, where I had no easy way of recording ideas, where I often have good ideas. I put a pad of paper and a pen in each one, and it’s made my ability to quickly and easily record ideas much higher. Here they are, nine places to make sure you’ve got pen and paper (or index cards, or Moleskine notebook) ready for your next great idea..." - Kol Tregaskes

Enjoy Life More: Schedule Your Leisure Time - Dumb Little Man
"Time management advice often talks about the important of having a schedule. When you’re at work, the plethora of meetings, conference calls and to-do lists probably provide a lot of structure. Whether you are actually getting things done is another story." - Kol Tregaskes from Bookmarklet
"But have you ever given any thought to scheduling your leisure time? Many of us find it all too easy to let our evenings and weekends fall into a comfortable – and often rather boring or unsatisfactory – routine. To get the most out of both your work and your play, try some of these ways of giving your leisure time a little structure too." - Kol Tregaskes
