Use that To Do List to keep you focused. Make it up at end of each day. Use that last half hour of day to set up your work schedule for next, put your work and To Do List in your tickler file, check your daily scheduler, check your goals for day, did you meet your goals for day, if not, why not, and what do you need to do to be sure you meet them for next day, and for week. Use your goals to keep you focused on your work day and what needs to be accomplished.
What time of day is it when your focus is wandering. Is it late afternoon, early evening? Maybe you need to get up earlier, and adjust your schedule so that your work day is done sooner, and your down time coincides with periods of time you are having trouble focusing.
We all go through periods when we need to get away or take time off, even from our own businesses. I don't care how passionate you are and how much you love what you do, sometimes you just need to get away from it all. We say DO IT, have your fun in sun, pool, golfing, whatever. Then come back with a vengeance to that business with renewed purpose and energy.
