I recently had a wake up call in how I manage my contracts. I won’t get into the catalyst, but the result has been amazing. See, I get distracted very easily.
Some distraction reduction methods have you record your day in 15 or 30 minute intervals so you know exactly what you’re doing. This is all well and good for some, but it’s burdensome on you. A distraction calendar’s focus on tallies is very easy to do and seems to be a great example of an 80% solution.
I haven’t seen this discussed anywhere else on the Internet, but I’m probably not the first to come up with this.
