When you sit down to do your work, start by deciding what is the #1 thing you want to get done today.
Is that a presentation?
A 3,000-word blog post?
The new LinkedIn campaign?
The quarterly report for the next board meeting?
Some estimates for next year?
A meaningful piece of a bigger project?
Whatever it is, start the day by picking the #1 thing, the one that will make that day a success. Take regular breaks as you go about it, but don’t stop your concentration by jumping to other stuff before you have that completed.
That’s what will give a real, tangible, and consistent sense of progress.
