fish-and-chips

Introduction to the Productivity Section

I’m Adam, one of the founders of OCO. In this section of the blog I’ll be writing about topics around productivity, in particular:

  • My Ketogenic diet
  • Sleep hacking
  • Teaching and Learning Methods
  • ADHD
  • GTD methodology.

So what got me interested in these things?

For the last few years I was studying, researching and teaching mathematics (you can view my mathematics page here).

Early on in my mathematical career, I noticed a direct correlation between eating a large portion of fish and chips for lunch, and having an unproductive afternoon’s work, with a possible unplanned snooze at my desk. This lead me on a quest to start improving my brain through diet, and from there I started looking into “life hacking” in general.

I found the research side of my PhD fairly easy and extremely enjoyable, and probably completed the bulk of the work in 2 years, but I found the writing up side near impossible! It became clear after a couple of years of not being able to write up my work that I have the classic signs of ADHD – undiagnosed because I did well in school. Recently I was recommended the book Getting Things Done (GTD), and now I am hopefully on the way to transforming my naturally chaotic way of being, into a much more organised and efficient entity.

So there’s my justification for what might follow…
