      • When picking a new tool, optimize for the things you do most often. Go deep on those instead of optimizing for edge cases

      • If a tool isn’t working; you find yourself avoiding it, it’s time for a new tool or method

      • If tech repeatedly fails you, go old school. Make a list of what you need to do in the morning. Cross off as you go. The next morning rip off that page, copy of what needs to get done to the days page or a someday maybe list

      • Read the Getting Things Done book. Even if you don’t want to practice GTD, it really helps you think about projects, problems, tasks and break them down
