Instead of just randomly quitting a task, make sure you leave off at a place that will inspire you to get going next time you’re ready to pick it up.
Before you finish work for the day, capture any open questions that you’re currently working on. Ask yourself: if you were to continue working, what would be the very next thing you’d do?
- Write those questions and the next thing you would do on a piece of paper.
- Determine what you’ll do first when you sit down to work again. This gives you an immediate starting point for the next day.
