Outsource my life? why not….
Finding ways to outsource your work requires a surprising amount of vigilance and creativity. You have to spend a few days watching yourself work and repeatedly asking: if this task isn’t something I can eliminate entirely, could someone else possibly do it? Don’t worry: after a while, the heuristic becomes a reflex. But you have to start out by scrutinizing everything you do and seriously thinking about asking for help with all of it.
Yup, you can manage your task with Twitter…sorta
Now you can manage your tasks using the Remember the Milk todo webapp via the Twitter micro-blogging service. Huh-wha? In a nutshell, Remember the Milk turns Twitter’s question – “What are you doing?” to “What should you be doing?”
Do good stuff for your brain
Cocoa beans contain the flavanol epicatechin and antioxidants, each of which seems to be good for your brain. Animal research suggests that chocolate can even improve memory.

It’s because we’re taught to believe that working is good and playing is bad. To reverse this unhealthy model, Neil proposes a tool: the Unschedule.
