  1. Schedule/plan your day ahead of time
  2. Reduce input (e.g. number of news channels, tv shows, websites, friends, …)

  4. Turn your phone notifications on silent
  5. Check your phone/messages/email at certain intervals
  6. Keep your workspace clean, tidy and clutter-free
  7. Don’t let other people’s urgencies take over your time
  8. Set blocks of time for working or reading. Set a timer to know when you’re finished.
  9. If you do something, finish it before you start something else
  10. Try not to multitask
