90 Minute Stints

Yesterday, I read an article in the NY Times about work time. The author was an expert in work efficiency. He said that the optimal time to spend on one thing is ninety minutes. So, as an author, he will write for an hour and a half, then take a break such as going for a run, taking a nap, eating a snack. Also, doing 3 of those 90 minute stints is plenty for one day.

People who stick to this accomplish more in one day than others who work non-stop all day long. Breaks make us more efficient and focused in what we are doing at each moment.

So, beginning today, I will be writing in 90 minute increments.

Sounds like a lot more fun than the all at once thing!
