10 Productivity Haiku

I don’t think I’ve written a haiku poem since the seventh grade. Today I wrote ten. I hope they help you work smarter, faster, and more efficiently.

    • Hey, thanks for visiting Tyler.

      3 snaps for your multitasking haiku. All too familiar. I’m curious if Apple’s looming OSX Lion will help us single-task better with their full-screen apps? There are lots of “focus” apps but this is the first I’ve heard being used at the OS level. Also, as a fan of your blog it was awesome meeting you during your visit to SF last week.
