Check It Off The List
Unfortunately, ninety percent of people check their email as soon as they get to work. That turns their agenda over to someone else. They do it because it’s easy you feel more effective in a shorter time by answering emails. Focus first on the hardest task of the day. This will allow you to apply your best to the most important jobs.
Resist the temptation to do mindless or easy things to gain a brief sense of accomplishment. It’s a discipline and a skill we must master if we want to have the best chance for success.
