Focus on the long-term

Turn off distractions
- Set a timer and give yourself a certain amount of time to work on a project.
- Turn off all music, your phone, and even your emails.
- If your office has a door, close it.
Give yourself a reward

- Then go back to your task and do it all over again.
Set a certain amount of time for important tasks
