The art of concentration

Via Tim O’Reilly and as published in 1930:

The fourth aid to concentration, is a
very practical one: make a daily schedule. In the first place, such a
schedule saves an inconceivable amount of time. Harrington Emerson, in
his noted book, Twelve Principles of Efficiency, lays great stress upon
the necessity and value of a written daily schedule. But what has this
to do with concentration as applied to memory, you may ask? Simply
this—your daily schedule helps to focus the mind, holds it steadily to
one thing at a time and in the right order. Following a logical
sequence tends to eliminate con-fusion.
