Focus Ideas

Why is it so hard to not respond to e-mails right away? I have always loved getting mail, but this is ridiculous. Time can dissolve while I respond to some not so urgent requests. Without being intentional and using some discipline, I will never get to the important but not urgent stuff. I can't even keep up with what lands on my desk unless I use my time more consciously. I am not going for perfection, however, I would like to be a bit more intentional.

Tips I have heard or tried:
This morning, I only had 30 minutes for one design AND I was shocked how much I got done when I focused.

Get up every 30 minutes -- one friend keeps a small cup of water on her desk so she has to get up regularly

Dont turn on the computer until you have done something important

Meditate, go for a walk, or something to collect yourself in the middle of the day.
