I’ve discovered Merlin Manns (10+2)*5 formula and I’m loving it.  I’m finding I’m more focus, and more motivated.

So here’s the breakdown of the idea for every 12 minutes, you spend 10 working and 2 as a break, I’m not one right now.  You don’t get stuck down rabbit holes of non-productivity, i.e. You Tube videos.

And you don’t get down about some miserable project you’re working on, because you can check when your next break is.  It’s a “OK, I can work on this for another 2 minutes, unitl my break” thing, otherwise you can find yourself dreading the task.  It breaks up the task into doable portions.
