Work Optimization

Fragments from imaginary dialogues

“What’s the optimal way to prioritize my daily work?”

“Create a system of principles for daily work, and continuously optimize it.

Here’s a few ideas:

Be creative before you’re reactive. (Brian Johnson)


Prioritize strategically. Prioritize the Macro, then the Micro. (Top-Down)

The day starts the day before. Prioritize for tomorrow today.

Select a realistic number of items for the day. Underestimate, to compensate for our tendency to overestimate [how much work we can get done].

Leave a time-buffer for contingencies.

Arrange the items in order of urgency and importance.

Arrange the items in order of excitementLeave the most exciting last, for when your energy level is lower, and to create anticipation. (Reward System)”
