Make appointments with yourself

I wrote on how to create and maintain a successful to-do list and planning your day here. But regardless of careful planning and well-intentioned focus, interruptions do happen and we get distracted by various events during the day. Here is something that worked for me to make it easier to avoid getting sucked away from important projects by these distractions.

“Treat your busy times like an important appointment with boss or a client. And keep the appointment. It will keep bothersome interruptions from getting in the way of your work.” — The Book of Good Habits by Dirk Mathison
