1. Do creative work first
Here’s why trying to do all the little things first is a really terrible idea. Because when you wake up you have this full tank of cognitive fuel, but what many of us forget is that we only have a finite amount of this super powerful cognitive fuel each and everyday and every single time that you make a decision or you resist temptation or exert any kind of self control, you start to drain your cognitive fuel tank.
2. Put your entire life on …
So rather than resist temptation, just eliminate it. And that means you have to put your entire life on airplane mode.
3. Write a onesie
So whatever you’re working, what I want you to do is remove everything from your sight. So make it super clean and super clear.
