Do Not Do “Just One More Thing”
We all fall into the trap of doing one quick thing before we move on to the next task, but that one thing never ends up being as quick as we think. Answering one email turns into hours of email correspondence and suddenly you’re late, you’re stressed, and you’re not able to tear yourself away from your work. Putting away one more piece of laundry leads to organizing your entire drawer and losing track of time. Don’t do it—that one thing can wait, and chances are it will make you late.
