Identify unproductive activities. Review your performance in your time tracking app to identify tasks that don’t contribute to the project’s success and that you can eliminate with little or no damage to the outcome.
Evaluate task importance. Even when you are in the middle of the task and you notice that it takes too much time already, step back and evaluate its importance and outcome.
Never lose sight of your vision. Reflect on how your daily tasks contribute to your goals. Adjust your vision if necessary.
Use peak performance time. Break your day into 3-8 time slots and assess your energy and productivity levels for a week. Rank-order the slots, find your peak time and use it for the most demanding tasks.
Get comfortable with imperfection. Remember that 20% of input produce 80% of results.
Practice self-care. Exercise regularly, develop a healthy diet, take breaks, meditate.
What's causing distraction? Figure it out - are you worried, afraid, bored.
Big powerful internal triggers can have easy fixes...anxiety can lead to research-rabbit-hole on the internet.
After identifying the triggers, reframe the task you need to do...how would someone who likes doing that task explain it? For example, "forced to do taxes" or "get to review last year's business successes?"
Success in almost everything involves time management. It seems like there aren't enough hours in the day to get everything that you need to do accomplished, but if you want to achieve much more than others in a shorter amount of time, you must improve how you manage that time.
