Advice on productivity from Jerry Seinfeld

I had already heard about Jerry Seinfeld’s calendar system from Austin Kleon.  Here‘s a recent post of his about it.  But, I hadn’t read this article–Jerry Seinfeld’s Productivity Secret by Brad Isaac.  It’s such a simple concept, and it makes so much sense.  Anytime really is a good time to try a new system, but the beginning of a new year is the perfect time to implement this system.

My challenge to you:

  1.  Buy a calendar.
  2. Do work.  Everyday.
  3. Don’t break the chain.

I’m going to do it too.  I’m buying a giant wall calendar (and a red Sharpie).  Here‘s the  calendar I picked out.  Can’t wait to start making those red Xs.
