I’m taking a break between my two papers and end of term prep (final topics are Herman Melville’s “Benito Cereno” and the Puntnam Monthly Magazine and the concept of Possible Worlds for narratology. I will post more when I’m closer to (or actually done)– but I do feel good about both. All the research is done, writing is underway, and I’m feeling positive that I’ll actually have two mildly cognizant 4,000 word papers done in a week.
Anyway, a friend posted this and it really resonated with me. It’s a “life hacks” post for maximum productivity. For me, being productive is all about planning and flow. The better I prepare, the better I perform. Some of the recommendations are things I already do, others I am excited to implement. Be sure to check out the comments.
