My friend Matt Cornell posted a great trick that should be in every micro-ISVs bag of tricks. This technique is ideal for those lingering small code projects we all have, but just have not found the motivation to code.
Matt’s technique? Think STING:

  • S – Select one task.
  • T – Time yourself.
  • I – Ignore everything else.
  • N – No breaks.
  • G – Give yourself a reward.

Now I have to add an “R” item to make this technique a little more valuable:

  • S – Select one task.
  • T – Time yourself.
  • R – Review the Desired Outcome.
  • I – Ignore everything else.
  • N – No breaks.
  • G – Give yourself a reward.

Reviewing the desired outcome puts first and foremost what you are aiming for, but I’m quibbling here. Definitely read his post about applying STING in full.
