I’m working on a few different pieces that could benefit from some stories. If you’ve got tips and tricks — and would be willing to let me use your name — please shoot me an email (lvanderkam at yahoo dot com):
- How to stop multi-tasking. We all do it, and know we shouldn’t do as much of it as we do. Do you have a good way to keep yourself focused? I’m also interested in stories of things that have gone horribly wrong while multi-tasking, too.
- Create that masterpiece while working a full-time job. I’ve got some novelists, but if you’ve created a different sort of major work of art (composing music, recording an album, staging an art show) while working a day job, I would love to hear your time management techniques.
- Non network-y ways to network. Some of my favorites are having dinner parties and power playdates. What else would you throw on that list?
- What the most successful people do at lunch… or anyone, really, to make the most of this mid-day break. Think trying to eat with someone new, using that time to exercise, etc.
I’d also love suggestions of people you think I should contact. Thanks for the help!
