“Do the difficult things while they are easy and do the great things while they are small. A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.” ~Lao Tzu

  1. Start early
  2. Limit your hours
  3. Make a short list
  4. Batch distractions
  5. Write shorter emails
  6. Limit meetings
  7. Automate
  8. Eliminate paperwork
  9. Clear your desk
  10. Get away
  11. Take breathing breaks
  12. Practice a focus ritual
  13. Schedule big blocks of creative time

Thanks Leo!
