At any moment in time I may wear one of these hats: interaction designer, coder, gamer, educator, hacker, athlete, musician, chef, woodworker. I like to dabble in lots of things...from the virtual to the physical.

I second Evernote. It's free and full of features. It works on all major platforms...iOS, OSX, Windows, Android.

@Christian. The topic is about effect on productivity. My point was that increasing executive function can help with productivity.

You would need to get your heartrate up. Exercise at a percentage of your maximum heartrate. Consult a doctor before doing anything strenuous. :)

@weronika More activity is more beneficial...also, note that the 30 minutes need to engage the cardiovascular system. So if they had the kids run for 30 minutes continuously at session, then that would increase Executive Function.

comment Is there any way to “save” highly motivated state in the evening and “load” it in the morning?
I think that for me, evenings tend to have less distractions in general. I like to work late into the night where most of my friends are not online, etc. It might seem like I'm more motivated and focused, but I think I'm actually just less distracted.

comment How to use the Pomodoro Technique while finishing a task and the Pomodoro rings?
I wonder how you would approach it if you're in the zone. Better estimation of a Pomodoro task? What would you do if you're in a zone and the Pomodoro comes to an end?

Potentially I can also take a peek at the pomodoro before I start on the next incremental 'unit of work'. If I think it's not going to get done during this pomodoro, then I should do something else and jot down this smaller task for the next pomodoro. I think this approach is in the philosophy of the pomodoro technique...of being better at managing tasks and estimating effort. :)

Just started using the Pomodoro technique and I already feel more organized and productive.
