An experiment to drastically shrink your workday

✅ Today’s tip: Prioritize your day by pretending you only have a few hours.

Look at your day today. Now imagine it was much, much shorter. Imagine you lost your electric power, your Internet connection, your phone. Imagine that by, say, 10:30 this morning, it was all going to go away. How much could you get done? What would you tackle first?

That’s the experiment Forge’s time-management expert Laura Vanderkam wants you to try this week. See what you can get done. It’s probably more than you think.
