15 minutes


  • The idea is that when scheduling work, if the piece of work takes 15 minutes or less, don’t even schedule it. Just do it right away. (This reduces a lot of organizational wheel spinning and water threading.)
  • Count every 15 minute interval when working on something – this helps increase focus.
  • You can take a break after good 15 minutes of work (also take a longer break after good 1 hour work work)
