WIKI WONDER

"A lot of productivity is capturing ideas. I use a wiki -- it's more valuable than e-mail for running a company -- and I have a page for every person with whom I interact frequently."

Garrett Camp is the founder of StumbleUpon, a Web service in San Francisco that helps users find relevant content based on others' recommendations.

MIND GAME

"If I think something is going to take me an hour, I give myself 40 minutes. By shrinking your mental deadlines, you work faster and with greater focus."

Krissi Barr is the founder of Barr Corporate Success, a business consulting firm in Cincinnati.

SHARE THE PAIN

"If you're having trouble getting started on something, you're going to have trouble finishing it. Delegate it sooner rather than later."

Julie Ruvolo is co-founder and COO of Solvate, a New York City-based provider of offsite office assistants.
