AI can diagnose and fix problems on my PC and AI can help me with my online shopping + refund/replace anything I need.

That future is not 40 years from now - that future was yesterday.

Whoa I didn't realize there was a name for this! This is LITERALLY how I break things up in my day and it's completely changed my life. My Pomodoro chunks are a little longer usually, 30-60 minutes, but if it's something I REALLY don't want to do, I'll break it down into 10 minute intervals and it's been an absolute miracle for sure.

Thank you for this! I can finally put a name to it.

Yeah it was a struggle. Took me months to finally get it going in a way that was routine. Having other people around to help you, remind you and support you is what makes a huge difference.

I finished three whole writing projects last month though, something I didn't think I was capable of doing at all, by organizing and breaking everything down. It was definitely worth it.

Yeah totally

  1. Break down every day into a task list
  2. Break down each task into the smallest pieces possible and put it into a checklist
  3. After setting a timer, usually 30-60 mins, I try to get as much done as possible
  4. After the timer goes off, break time! Stretch, snack, work out, play games - whatever.

Being able to just stop and do something else really helps. It's a super slow process and only so much gets done each day, but I get all my projects done on time because of it. I'm more productive in that focused 30 minutes than I am in a distracted 4 hours.
