No New Tools:

So, now I come to the part where I make my plea: no new tools, please. If you are inter­ested in improv­ing how peo­ple work, you should devise meth­ods for work, man­ners of behav­ior, and meth­ods of deci­sion mak­ing. Doc­u­ment your ide­ol­ogy and apply it with exist­ing tools, so nearly any­one can fol­low along.

Work­ing from home. Matt Gemmell’s tips, tricks, and advice for work­ing from home. The tip on buy­ing a nice chair is key. Ensur­ing that you’re happy with the phys­i­cal envi­ron­ment goes a long way.
