- Make a list. Write down everything you need to do on a piece of paper.
- Do the quick hits. Take 15 minutes, no more, to do the fastest things on your list: a quick email response, the 2-minute phone call. Use a timer to keep you focused.
- Turn off distractions. Now spend 35 minutes focused on the tougher things on the list with your phone and email alerts switched off.
- Take a break and repeat. Take a 10-minute break and start again. Before long, you'll have crossed enough off your list to restore your calm.
