Here’s how. The first thing you need to do is plan your day. The reason is a simple one: when you don’t know all that you have to do you will be less willing to do it.

Yup! Laying down a list of tasks will motivate you more than just showing up to work on something vague and not structured. Identify the components, break big tasks in small tasks, and follow the plan accordingly. Create momentum by crossing off tasks and moving on to the next ones.

You should allow yourself breaks of course, but only when work gets done. Breaks without work is called procrastination.
