Psychologically, this is like Jerry Seinfeld's Productivity Secret (don't break the chain!), and tactically, it's like using a "done" list to keep you motivated. In this case, though, you begin by reviewing what you've already accomplished and using those checked off tasks to give you a running start. As Fast Company notes, this productivity hack could also include reviewing (or even retyping in author Joan Didion's case) all the work you've already completed so far.

When we see that we're on a streak, our brains want to do more to continue the streak. The longer the streak, the greater the disappointment if we break the streak.
If you've done something for 61 days in a row, don't you want to hit 62? Wouldn't itsuck to start over again at one?
So today, I encourage you to take the first step in starting a streak.
Make a list. Backfill it with things you've already done today.
Now do the first item on that list. Maybe you do the second one too. Keep it going and don't stop.
Excellence is momentum.

Due to my recent success in building my first Boombox ( you can view it in my page ) , i got some extra spare time , so i decided that the best way for me to utilize it is by building something !
i saw those two crappy cheap speakers that i got on eBay for 35$ ,so i decided to do something with them , instead letting them fill with dust

When you want to access it again, you just download the file, rename it with a .zip extension and open it like normal. If you're using a Mac, WonderHowTo also has a primer on how to accomplish this task.This may not be useful for most situations. Flickr has an upload limit on photos of 200MB, and this process means that it's somewhat cumbersome for daily use instead of a service like Dropbox, but in a pinch, it never hurts to have a backup plan. While it won't work for uploading to Flickr, you can also hide files in a JPEG to keep certain data out of sight.How to use that 1TB of free Flickr space to store stuff other than images | Reddit via WonderHowTo
So, how to do this:
1) Put the two files you want to combine into a single folder, preferably off the root of your drive, say c:\combos
2) Hit the Windows key + R, type in CMD and hit Enter
3) Change the directory to the root:
4) And then to the folder where your files are:
5) Now, to combine the files type:
C:\combos>copy /B project1.zip+cat.gif project1.gif
6) That’s it! Now you’ll see a file called project1.gif in your \combos folder that you can upload and store on Flickr – it’ll appear as just whatever the .gif file was that you combined with your archive.
