Tick Tock

The secret to getting ahead is getting started. The secret to getting started is breaking your complex, overwhelming tasks into smaller, manageable tasks, and then starting on the first one. -- Mark Twain

Have you ever had so much to do that you didn't know where to begin? Just writing things down seems too overwhelming. How do you get from the feeling of being overwhelmed to the feeling of being accomplished? Baby steps are the key.

Blocking off time for uninterrupted focus is half the battle. The other half is avoiding distractions. Our current society of easy access to information and social media are huge distractions to getting work done. Start with blocking off small amounts of time with no TV, phone, internet, friends, etc. and focus on your assignments. As you become more accustomed to blocking off time, increase the duration of the blocks.
