Productivity Framework

Productivity Guide

Partially based on Pmarca’s Personal Productivity Guide

Key Points:

  • “Work on whatever is most important or most interesting”

    don’t keep a schedule.

  • “Only agree to new commitments when both your head and your heart say yes.”

  • Each night before you go to bed, prepare a 3x5 index card with a short list of 3 to 5 things that you will do the next day.


Keep three and only three lists: a Todo List, a Consume List, and a Later List.

-> I have my Todo-List in Obsidian.

-> Consume-List in Chrome

-> Later-List in Obsidian, as a Backlog
