Surmonter ces tâches inachevées Les tâches inachevées nous polluent l’existence en permanence en occupant notre esprit de manière consciente ou inconsciente. On se fixe régulièrement de petites tâches qu’on prévoit de réaliser au cours de la journée ou de la semaine, pour lesquelles on ne trouve pas le temps nécessaire et qu’on remet systématiquement au jour suivant ou à la semaine suivante.

The movement to make university-level content freely and openly available online began a decade ago, when the faculty at MIT agreed to put the materials from all 2,000 of the university’s courses on the Web.

No Idea Left Behind: 25 Tools for Capturing Ideas Anywhere As a serial entrepreneur, I’m addicted to ideas. I feed off of ’em. And nothing makes me more upset than having a great idea… and losing it. Ideas never happen at opportune times, and having the proper idea capture tools can make sure that you’ll capture all your ideas for later processing. The problem with ideas is that they’re situational.
