Someone asked me the other day, ‘what makes you so productive / good at time management?’
I replied that it was an even combination of two things:
- Single-pointed focus.
- Adaptability & flexibility.
You must have both.
I carefully plan each day, often time-boxing every minute of every hour.
Thus, if the time is set to work on project ‘A’, then I will not do ANYTHING else except that One Thing, as Gary Keller taught me.
Yet at the same time, if you call me, or knock on my door, it won’t be a bother.
