Here's one:

1. Write down the goals you want to be done

2. Break down each item into sub-items. Write those down.

3. Either complete an item and cross it off the list, or repeat step 2 with the remaining items.

This is the SW tool I use to accomplish the above:

TaskPaper is glorified text files... and it is magnificent. OmniOutliner is good for second place.

5) When you give the boss info, use numbers.

6) Control over our schedule stops us from getting tired at work.

7) Sorting your email into folders? Stop it.

8) There are rules that your brain works by. Get familiar with them.

9) Gesturing helps you learn.

10) There's a quick and easy way to improve performance at anything.

I want to Stash this list a thousand times, Eric. :)

a video we made on productivity. you may like it :)

Noah, this AppSumo productivity video is awesome. All 27 minutes of it. :)

You advance from your position of strength. That which you love - that which you are known for - is where one provides most value.

Unless you love something illegal, in which case, DON'T DO THAT.

There's also an excellent productivity trick to be learned from Jerry Seinfeld, believe it or not. I also have a firm belief in the awesome power of checklists.

Every morning I make a checklist of the top 3 things I want to get done that day.

The list can have more than 3 items, but I always make sure to have a top 3.

There is nothing more satisfying than getting each one of those top 3 things done.

Eric, do you have anything more about making progress one day at a time?
