Manage an ever-changing schedule

Parth Misra, writing at Entrepreneur, offers some tips for productivity when you can’t predict the future.

Work slow and steady. Trying to rush through everything to get it done causes small details to be overlooked. Break your work into smaller tasks.

Time-tracker apps help show you what your days really consist of. You can get a better picture of how much time a project or task takes.

Track how you feel throughout the day. Are you more productive in the morning? Afternoon? Night? Schedule important projects for those times.

Warm up before you dive into work. Find a pre-work ritual that helps you mentally prepare, such as listening to music, exercising or meditating.
