Five Secrets to Success

The Business Insider had a good phone interview with Google's ex-CIO, Douglas Merrill, over the weekend.

Merrill made a good case for not multi-tasking. As I get older I have more and more problems with single tasking, so I appreciated his thoughts.

Take the time to read the short interview here, but in the mean time, the highlights are...

  1. Don't Try to Learn Things - I like the Albert Einstein story
  2. Get Stuff Out of Your Head 
  3. Never Multi-task
  4. Focus on One Thing
  5. Don't Confuse Being Neat for Being Organized

Enjoy.
