Advice from Garrett Camp of StumbleUpon, Krissi Barr of Barr Corporate Success, and Julie Ruvolo of Solvate.
"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.
"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.
"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.
