If you are like me, keep a task list. Get stuff that needs taken care of and you don’t like to do done first. Then set yourself a limit on how much time you get to spend on stuff you like to do. If you have to, set yourself a reminder in your outlook calendar, or set your alarm clock to go off. Then stop and do something fun with your family.
Your biggest tool is going to be a task list. You can scribble on a piece of scrap paper, use your outlook task list or make yourself a template. Whatever method you decide works best for you, I suggest you get in habit of checking tasks on your list off as you accomplish them. There is just something very rewarding about putting a little checkmark next to a list item, or crossing it out.
Play with a couple of options and find one that works for you. The important part is to make it part of your daily routine. You may want to create your list first thing in morning, or night before. I also end up adding to-do’s to my list as day goes on. Just make sure you don’t over do it particularly if you have a little overachiever in you.
Now go get that work done.
