I admit that organization and productivity aren’t my greatest strengths, but I’m really great at watching videos on YouTube. Especially ones like this video from AsapSCIENCE that teaches us about the science behind productivity. One point they make is that it’s important to take breaks from your work. Why not take one for the next three minutes and watch this video? Tell your boss it will make you more productive. You might learn something.

You will learn something.

Probably the “Zeigarnik Effect.”

UPDATE: The team behind AsapSCIENCE collaborated with Gregory Ciotti from for this video. His article about the science of productivity can be found here.
