This came up just in time for me. Two colleagues are leaving my company and have been complaining about our company non-stop for what seems like weeks. The air of cynicism and negativity spread and grew, and I found myself getting grumpy and cynical just with the words floating over the cube wall. From ZenHabits “7 Simple Tips To Deal With Negative People | zen habits”.

One of my biggest complaints about my iPod Touch was that every time I did an OS update, the device would need to be hard reset, meaning I lost all my icon positions. (Not a problem since I upgraded my machine to Win 7). Lifehacker talks about how to avoid this at “Restore Your iPhone Without Losing Your Homescreen Organization”.

Stepcase Lifehack has a great article on how to find the best things to focus on using Pareto’s principle at “The Art of Stress-Free Work”

Yes, and yes and yes! A very real problem looked at in Stepcase Lifehack’s “Why We Over-Complicate GTD and What To Do About It”.

Problogger’s “7 Valuable Lessons Bloggers Can Learn from Construction Workers” isn’t just for bloggers. I would argue that the points apply to productivity. Hmmm…I sense an article out of this.

Apparently I am not the only one who suffers from this! From Feelgooder’s “Get Rid of Your Eyelid Twitch”.
