Brains require stimulation. If you're locked into a pattern of work, work, and more work, your brain soon habituates - the same way that it lets you stop hearing a clock ticking. So, if you want to be more effective at work, you must, paradoxically, be less single-minded in your devotion to work. Anything you do - anything - that stimulates new segments of your brain will make you a more effective programmer or analyst. I promise, with a money-back guarantee.
