Take a moment to focus

  1. Before you start a piece of work, think about what it will make possible when it’s done.
  2. Put on a great energising (or calming etc) piece of music that gets you in the ’mood’ for the work you are about to do.
  3. Set up a reward for completing what you are working on!
  4. Get some accountability; reach out to a buddy or your coach or your working groups and say what you are about to do.
  5. Let those of you know around you that you are undisturbable for the next X minutes.
  6. Decide when the task is done to a ‘good enough’ state (so youdon’t fall into perfection ‘hell’)
  7. Make sure you have a to do list that’s just right for you-3–6 things in a day is actually all that most of us manage.
