    If there's a too-long non-fiction book you want to read, search the author's name in Podcasts. You can likely find a 45-minute summary by the author that way.

    At Starbucks I ordered a venti Pike Place coffee. Usually they don't ask my name for just a coffee but the guy did. I don't love giving my name so I said my name was Pike. Boy, did he get a kick out that.

    When I don't know where to begin with a problem or paper, I make a bullet point list of all the known information I have, what I'm required to solve/include, and what I want to include. It really helps to get all my ideas down on paper, even if they're unorganized at first. Plus, it's an easy first task, so it's less likely that I'll procrastinate.

    Write things on paper even if you don't have to, switch between different topics to keep your mind fresh and encourage connections between things, use colors

    For writing, I'm a big proponent of what I call "idiot writing" when I'm stuck. So even if I can't come up with the sentence I want, I'll write "and this is where I explain X" or "he says something about his mother here" and move on. It helps take the heat off to write "well," helps me develop structure and lets me keep making forward progress.
