Step 1 – Identify those precious few hours each day where you are at peak awesome. What two to three hours of each day are your most productive? Step 2 – Ruthlessly guard that time. Get out of meetings. Turn off the email. Forget LinkedIn. Move away from anything that prevents peak awesome. Step 3 – Produce. Take that number 1 most-valuable-project and make progress. Repeat day after day. On the other side of 15 or 20 or 30 or 60 of those days, you will be shocked at how much got done. Nothing beats focused effort over time.
