TIPS:
Know Your Body
Break tasks into hour increments. Long tasks are hard to get into; feels like all needs to get done
When Prioritizing:


Complete the most important tasks first.
Anything that can be dealt with quickly & simply - do it straight away.
Don't procrastinate
Set goals - what needs to be completed today, tomorrow, etc.
Be realistic
Focus on one task at a time
Worry about the size of your tasks will not make your lists any smaller
Allocate Time to Tasks
Break tasks into hour increments.


Give mini-deadlines.


Treat yourself to a task you enjoy if you get it done.
We're always more focused and productive with limited time.
Long tasks are hard to get into; feels like it all needs to get done
You deserve it.
When are you at your best? Evaluate your energy....
Morning
Night
Afternoon
Schedule times to do your more challenging brain work when you're going to be at your best.

Set up a work routine and stick to it. Your body will adapt.
Avoid
Interruptions
Distractions include:

Phones
Social media
Friends, colleagues, family
Noise
"Write down anything that distracts you - google searches, random thoughts, new ideas, whatever. The point is, if you write them down, they'll stop bubbling up when your in the zone."
-Steven Corona, Twitpic
Take it or leave it.
"Separate thinking and execution to execute faster and think better."
- Sol Tanguay, Imarklab
=
"Yesterday's home runs don't win today's games."
-Babe Ruth
Turn the page on yesterday.
Only ever think about today and tomorrow.
Take Breaks.

More work hours doesn't mean more productivity. Use constraints as opportunities.
