Interesting article “How I Work: Bill Gates” from 2006 about how Bill Gates (you know, that bloke with the software house) works. Good insights into his productivity methods.
It seems to boil down to:
- Three monitors (email, current work item, browser)
- Email filtering
- Ignore “the toast” – pop-up email notification
- Email, Desktop folders and Calendar instead of to-do lists
- SharePoint to collaborate on projects
I can certainly vouch for three monitors, email filtering and the whiteboard.
