Do you find that your mornings or productive time are filled with meetings, and by the time you can start projects, you’re tapped out and don’t have energy left to work on anything requiring attention? If you are in a position to have control over your schedule, stop letting other people or your inbox control your agenda.
If you’re a morning person, block your calendar and keep it sacred. Don’t schedule a meeting or check your email until 10 AM or until after you get 2-3 hours of genius time in. Protect your time to give your best self.
