At the great Kevin Kelly’s newsletter Recommendo, he mentions “the best, most succinct roundup of productivity techniques I’ve seen”. The 16-minute video is a rapid-fire overview and ranking of 16 productivity-fueling practices by Ali Abdaal, a productivity and life-style design blogger who speaks faster than anyone we know.

…and you don’t need to like worry about distraction and procrastination from doing something you genuinely enjoy…
