The One-Dayer

I am a big believer in constraint as a force for driving creativity, focus, and insights. Also, as a key to getting shit done.

The One-Dayer.

As in: “Should we do a one-dayer on this on Thursday?”

  • When you have a project that’s been going for a while and you just want to get it out the door (and it’s not inconceivable to do it in a day)
  • When you have a crazy hunch you can’t get out of your head
