Human beings and computers alike share the challenge of how to get as much done as possible in a limited time. Over the last fifty or so years, computer scientists have learned a lot of good strategies for managing time effectively — and they have a lot of experience with what can go wrong. Brian Christian shares how we can use some of these insights to help make the most of our own lives.

    I just realized that I'm wasting time from learning not to waste time by watching this video.

    I kinda learned this myself from experience. Things get done dramatically faster when there is no regard for order or perfection

    Why do I feel like I’m giving a thumbs up in every comment in every Ted-Ed video, cause they all apply to me…

    1. Spend less time ranking/prioritizing and more time doing (chronologically, at random, etc.)
    2. Avoid distractions (i.e. only look at other things/notifications hourly)
