Since graduating college I have mixed research of new technologies with research of being as productive as I can be. This includes development tools like IDE’s, good testing tools, and better pair programming techniques. But also I try to keep up with the popular Get Things Done (GTD) movement, most recently utilizing Spring Pad as well as better ways to exercise our brains and transform from novice to experts in our career fields (information I picked up from the book!). Pragmatic Thinking and Learning was a great book in introducing many new ideas to me as well as a great resource to start research on all those ideas.
