Afternoon routines

In the afternoons distractions have the most power:

  • Move your body at the same time every day so your brain knows you’re still getting stuff done.
  • Save the easy stuff for the afternoon when you can switch on autopilot.
  • Spend just 5 minutes on that “Big Thing”, but only if  you need to finish a larger project.
