A trigger list for weekly reviews. Good lord, that’s long. 🙂

How to do a Weekly Review in Under an Hour | Zen Habits

Zen To Done (ZTD): The Ultimate Simple Productivity System | Zen Habits

Neuroscience: One Pill Makes You Autistic — And One Pill Changes You Back
This rather creeps me the hell out. Reading articles about people casually flicking on and off parts of their brain via drugs makes me think of movies like Bladrunner and other cyberpunk-ish stories and setting. *shudder*
