You have a lot of responsibilities and plenty of to-dos to keep track of. Add in your email and Instapaper and it can feel impossible to make any progress. But it's not!

We’ll also cover some common organizational pitfalls that we as programmers can fall into, and we’ll briefly discuss tooling, including the pros and cons of using a tool like OmniFocus.
