I particularly enjoyed the Work Habits chapter as it familiarized me with the Mind Map Diagram, a very useful tool for the organization of information and I cherish suggestions concerning: a) management of work interrupted (“Leave Work Unfinished”), b) work planning, measure and report and c) warning against mishaps, which I have been lucky enough not to have encountered yet but you never know...(“Avoid relying on a computer close to a deadline”). In consulting the same chapter, I was also relieved to find that I have been on the right track all along as regards mail merging and keeping files in a different version before making big changes.
I also found the information available in the chapters “Security”,” Privacy” and “Digital Preservation” invaluable for professional and personal use and was further delighted to be introduced to much more effective ways of completing familiar tasks (“Name your Data” –Name cells with formulas to make them more readable).
I’m sure there are many more aspects of this book for readers to benefit from. There is something in it for everybody. N’joy!
190+ Tips for Busy Knowledge Workers
So what I expected was a book with advise on writing code, or on choosing certain algorithms for solutions of certain (small compared to Big Data) sizes. But this is a productivity book of another kind. It offers advise from when to read email in order to make the most of your available worktime to whether your chair should have arms or not and why. It is written in a clear flowing style and if you’ve ever heard dds speak, you almost listen his voice while reading it. It is not heavy stuff and this makes it an excellent companion for the bus.
Given my aversion to certain word processors I particularly enjoyed advise on how to handle documents with them and picked up a few helpful tips along the way. Travelling advise was fun even though it does not affect me and I find chapter 2 (Work Habits) the most important one since it offers ways to deal with interruptions of the flow:
"It can take us more than 15 minutes to enter into such a state of focused attention, and only a trivial interruption to exit from it."
Best advise from the book: LOG YOUR CHANGES
