Too busy to be productive? No you're not.
Robert Pozen's "Managing Yourself: Extreme Productivity" in The Magazine at the Harvard Business Review. Yeah, I know, not everyone will carry a flashlight in her briefcase so she can read in a dimly lit taxi. Or shower, shave, and dress in 15 minutes, lay out his clothes the night before, and eat the same thing for breakfast every morning, day in and day out. But Pozen's lessons on productivity are still helpful, if only because they make us reflect on everything we do, when we do it, and how we get it done.
