Productivity tips video from Sparring Mind

I'm sharing this video from Sparring Mind because it packs many great points into a short presentation. It proclaims the evils of multi tasking and gives good advice about avoiding time wasting habits. I can attest to the value of working in short productive bursts of 60 to 90 minutes. This is the length of most of my writing sessions. After about 90 minutes I definitely need to take a break to refresh my mind. The video says that this is the general work pattern of successful and creative people. There is no point in trying to power through and work longer without a break. It won't produce better results.
