For nearly a decade, Tony Schwartz has be­gun his workdays by focusing for 90 minutes, uninterrupted, on the task he deemed most important the night before. After 90 minutes—the optimal human limit for intense focus—he takes a break.

He starts the clock at a specific time. During that time, he shuts down e-mail and every other window on his screen. Phone calls roll to voice mail. He gets more done in those 90 minutes than in any other comparable period of the day.
