Re: Take your time and use it
I think these are valuable tips that apply not to the work place environment but to our personal lives as well.  By organizating our tasks and what tasks we accomplish we can truly have more productive days.  If we get to the wrong pattern of lifestyle it damages our personal lives.

Re: Take your time and use it
Mini sprints and single-tasking feel cut from the same cloth -- a recognition that we aren't very good multi-taskers. Single-tasking = Quality, Multi-tasking = Quantity.

Take your time and use it

Very good advice though I know it's not possible all the time. In some corporate cultures it's hard to implement steps that allow more control over the day however I always use a specific technique to help myself manage the day. I block time on my calendar in the morning and afternoon every day that I do not take meetings. These blocks of time help to get focused work done and also help alleviate the overtime meeting issue that causes the entire day to back up. These windows of time help to accomplish project goals and avoid the avalanche of work that always follows hours of conference calls or meetings.
