I just finished the book "the 4-hour workweek" by Tim Feriss. I found his thoughts are pretty much aligned with mine: measure what counts, eliminate distractions, and do not over-communicate. Too bad he published his book before I started this blog.
I think the best point of the book is the focus on not checking email too often. Simply rurnng off push notification on the phone is bliss.
Enjoy the summer and close Outlook before is's too late!
