I am the kind of person motivated more by tools of accessibility and productivity other than the belief of success and happiness. For instance, my writing habit is benefited more from the tool could count my typing words and correct my grammar automatedly other than my determined mind to be a writer.
Every morning I begin my work from scanning 'Product Hunt' to check today's popular list. Creative and inspiring new products are the most realistic way to cheer me up. In the information age, I hold the belief that there are always advanced digital tools to get work done in a smarter way, all I need to do is to hunt the tools from the 'internet ocean', test their performance and then make the best of them.
After one month's tracking my daily routines and transforming them into a more reliable way, I optimised each part by a combination of several independent tools. The processes were quite annoying because it seems like forming a team by cooperating strangers to achieve the same goal. Each team member has a risk of being replaced with a better alternative.
There is an observation period after a team built, which usually takes me one week. The 80/20 rule states that, for many events, roughly 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes. Though frequently changing my collection of productivity tools, 20% of them persist and become my unconscious habits. Actually, it won't stop me keep hunting for more since the margin productivity also matters.
