How do you distinguish the urgent from the important? Without knowing, you could easily focus on incremental stuff all day long.
One idea: For a period of time—say, between 7 and 10 a.m.—do nothing but focus on long-term projects. Don’t even launch your e-mail. With that sacred time, you can do things you might never do otherwise.
Another idea: Stop “hoarding” when it comes to the work you’re passionate about. When you’re passionate about a project, you may tend to answer every question about it that comes across e-mail. Try to get out of that rhythm.
