A few actionable points

  1. Time-box your projects: Set a deadline for how long a project will take, such as two weeks, and stick to it. This will help you stay focused on the task at hand and ensure you ship the project on time.
  2. Create interruption-free zones: Designate a space where you’ll work uninterrupted. If you work in an office, talk to your boss about finding a quiet space or creating a policy to minimize interruptions.
  3. Have less to do: Embrace the concept of “enough” in your projects. Focus on fewer features, staff, and clients, and strive to do those things really well instead of spreading yourself too thin. This will help you stay focused and be more productive.
