Although the article is geared to employees with 9-5's, these tips are also useful to freelancers and self-employed people.

That Youtube clip is fantastic - I'm not sure it made me more productive but it certainly made me laugh!

Faulty link? Jul 24, 2014

I can't read the article: even when I copy and paste the link, it reverts to the home page

Love the kittens!

Oh dear. My reputation for being fussy is at stake here. Jul 25, 2014

I only now, after Tom's virtuous remark, took the time to read my previous post and see a typo that I cannot now correct, because it is more than 24 hours after I posted it. For the record, I DO know the difference between it's and its.... I just posted in haste, didn't proofread and left out the apostrophe. Please don't set Al Yankovic on me (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Gv0H-vPoDc).

And now, probably Skitt's law will come into play: Skitt's law I: Any post correcting an error in another post will contain at least one error itself.

(Edited, because Skitt's law did of course apply...)

Cute but... Jul 27, 2014

Those kittens have excellent reflexes and follow the "choreograph" spot-on, but... they were not exactly productive. Still, thank you for the chuckle, Suzan.
