Jerry Seinfeld on Productivity (Don’t Break the Chain!)


Some great words of wisdom from life hacker. I couldn’t resist posting it. It’s Jerry Seinfeld on productivity:

He told me to get a big wall calendar that has a whole year on one page and hang it on a prominent wall. The next step was to get a big red magic marker.

He said for each day that I do my task of writing, I get to put a big red X over that day. “After a few days you’ll have a chain. Just keep at it and the chain will grow longer every day. You’ll like seeing that chain, especially when you get a few weeks under your belt. Your only job next is to not break the chain.””Don’t break the chain.” He said again for emphasis.

Priceless. I ❤ Seinfeld.
