Regardless of which time-
1. Set a plan for the day. In the morning, before you turn on your computer, spend five minutes writing down what you want to accomplish that day. Keep it realistic by scheduling the tasks’ time in your calendar. Schedule the hardest things first.
2. Refocus. Every hour, stop what you’re doing, look at your list and reflect on your last hour. Was it productive? What can you do to make the next hour productive?
3. Review. After you’ve shut down your computer, ask yourself what you were able to accomplish that day. What will you do differently tomorrow?
