When it comes to design, we often find ourselves in a constant state of design “hibernation.” We’re so busy getting things done that it’s easy to forget that the idea never even crossed our minds. This time of the year is a great time to remember to set aside time for design.
Design is a lot like the “shovel-shaking” process of clearing snow from your driveway. When you’re really feeling creative, its easy to forget about all of your other work projects and just push the shovel into the ground. This is why design can be difficult to keep on task. We’ll keep this in mind as we set out to get the work done so we can continue to design, but we should try to keep our motivation up throughout the day.
Set aside a few hours to get the work done. We’ll be setting up our desks, putting in our chairs, and hanging up our stuff. We’ll be setting up our monitors and working on our laptops. We’ll be making sure all the cables and wires are connected, that the lights are on and turned on, and that the computers are all set up.
I could go on and on about the importance of staying on task, but I think one of the easiest ways to keep your motivation going through the day is to set aside some time to work. When you start a project, you always have to set aside some time to do it, but you should also set aside some time to think about the project (so you don’t have to think about it all the time).
Setting aside some time at the beginning of a project is the easiest way to ensure that you dont get distracted and forget to get back to your project. I recommend getting a notebook and putting down a task before you start. Most of the time, we have a little task that we are going to work on and then we just have to wait for the other to finish. Once you have that task down, you can just go back and start working on it.
If you have the time, you can set aside some time (a half hour or hour or so) to just read a book. Don’t be afraid to just put this down and then start working on something else. If you need some background reading or a primer on something, this is a great way to do it.
If you want to get started, get into the habit of starting with the most important tasks first. I know that this is a bit of a cliche, but it really works.
When making a to-do list, I like to set my to-do list so that the first thing I do is the most important task. This ensures that I’m not overwhelmed with a ton of things that will be just a chore to complete, and is a better method of procrastination, because I’ll have the first thing I work on first.
It’s not just about starting with the most important tasks first. It’s also about doing the most important tasks first. In fact, if you want to do better, you have to do the most important tasks first. If you want to do things that are going to have an affect on your life, you have to get started with the most important tasks first.
Setting your goals is one of the hardest tasks you have to get done. But if you want to get through your to-do list, you have to put it first. Even if you have to do a lot of things that will be good for you to do, you have to get started with your to-do list.
