- To Do List
I dump out everything that I have to do, keep in mind and think about on a piece o paper. This clears up space in my head and gives my brain back some breathing room. Without having to constantly keep these To Do’s in the back of my mind, I can focus on the actual assignments.
To make sure that deadlines are met and every task is finished when needed, it is now time to prioritize. The most time sensitive or crucial assignment should be your number one on that list. Following with the second important task and so on and so on.
- Turn your Skype on “Do not Disturb”
- Switch your phone to silent. If you are not expecting an important phone call, you can call them back.
- And now put it away. You don’t need to see the flashy light of an incoming notification. Your Instagram followers will survive a few hours without you.
- Turn off your e-mail notifications. That way all mail will still be coming in. You can then check and respond after you have finished your task.
