Productivity: Filling calendar

“I learned this trick from Graham Jenkin, the COO at AngelList.

In 2007 and 2008, Graham was my boss at Google. He managed something like twenty people, and he gave each of us personal attention and true support. I learned a lot from Graham in those years.

But Graham wasn’t just a great manager. He also led the redesign of AdWords, Google’s flagship advertising product. While managing us, he was designing user interfaces, testing with customers, reviewing specifications, and negotiating with engineering. I often wondered where he found the time, but assumed he was just really busy.”

The author John Jeratsky, writer of sprint (I really liked this book), shares an idea about productivity which I liked – that add most important projects in your calendar ahead of time and respect that.
