1. Work backwards from goals to milestones to tasks.

2. Stop multi-tasking. No, seriously—stop. Switching from task to task quickly does not work. In fact, changing tasks more than 10 times in a day makes you dumber than being stoned.

3. Be militant about eliminating distractions

4. Schedule your email

5. Use the phone. Email isn’t meant for conversations. Don’t reply more than twice to an email. Pick up the phone instead.

6. Work on your own agenda

7. Work in 60 to 90 minute intervals. Your brain uses up more glucose than any other bodily activity. Typically you will have spent most of it after 60-90 minutes.

Compare these suggestions to your work environment… and you wonder why you seem overwhelmed and exhausted before your 14 hr days is over ???
