Discipline leads to creativity. If we are able to bring discipline and order in our daily lives, by decluttering and focusing on the important things, we can be more productive and achieve a lot.
Regular practice develops your skills due to the fact that productivity habits compound.
The act of a successful positive habit increases manifold as we move up the ladder.

Sundays are a great day to get your errands out of the way, like grocery shopping. Also, take time for cooking meals, cleaning rooms, or dropping things off at different shops. You most likely don't have the time and energy to do these activities after work.
But don’t spend all of Sunday on these tasks. Even though they’re important, you still need some time to decompress.
Make sure you also do something you enjoy, like brunch with friends or spending time with your family.
This gives you something to look forward to during the week and it also helps you to disconnect.

For a manager handling a set of team members, staggering of specific To-Dos and stacking them together makes it a focused task, and is done with efficiency.
Example: All one-on-one meetings can be stacked in a single day, while team meetings can be done on another day.
The main objective is to save time and leave open days for deep work, where there are no meetings to attend and the tasks at hand can be focused on without official distractions.
As information moves slowly, one-on-one meetings help identify problems that can be resolved the next day during a team meeting. Senior management can take it up later in the week if required.
