Productivity tips from Bill Gates – How He Works

At Fortune, Bill Gates talks about his workflow and his organization system. On top of his marketing stuff on his products, he talks about couple of key things that involves in his daily work life. Here are some key points:

  • Paperless.
  • Email is the first communication medium
  • Uses email filtering to drop down the number of incoming emails to an acceptable level.
  • Email as the central universe of his workflow.
  • No to-do list. Uses email, folders and online calendar.
  • Uses email notification icon, but discipline of ignoring it.
  • Uses desktop search for files, other than navigating through folders.
  • Uses whiteboard to brainstorm.

Interesting in term of how he works. Any praises or bashes on Bill Gates’ work style?

The Lifehack Show Episode 6: On Friendship and Belonging

In this episode, we talk with Dr. Kyler Shumway, Doctor of Clinical Psychology and author of The Friendship Formula: How to Say Goodbye to Loneliness and Discover Deeper Connection. In his earlier years, Dr. Shumway was a target of bullying; he also found himself plagued with social anxiety, which he still battles today, yet also uses as an empowering guide to help others overcome social anxiety and form solid, lasting friendships within their own lives.

Dr. Shumway is an advocate for friendship and believes that: “… together, we can bring an end to the bullying problem by breaking the chain of suffering, daring to be different, and creating a world where everyone belongs.”
