(4 min read) Batching things by function can skyrocket your productivity.
That's good advice but to put it in practice, one would need to know how to "bucketify" your tasks. What are the buckets you use by default? Coding, email, meetings? Or identification, understanding, execution?
Interesting strategy. Thanks for sharing!
Yes, this is true. I think this is one of the reason why people feel so stressed and get little done in a day.
About listening to music while working though, I enjoy listening to music while working - while working on the stuff that is within my "flow state". If I`m working on something that's outside of my flow region - I prefer silence.
I`ll go one step further and say that the senior leadership rarely cares about doing the things right by the human nature (or psychology). Its all about efficiency - perceived efficiency not true efficiency.
