It’s a brain hack, I know. The joy of the whole “day to night to day again” pattern of life is that bit in the middle: the gap that occurs after whatever happened and before whatever happens next. The gap encourages you to remember that if you fell short of your goals on a Monday, well, there’s nothing stopping you from achieving everything hoped and then some on Tuesday.
I like this “brain hack”. Not to mention who doesn’t like a clean laptop? Something I often do when feeling unfocused and unmotivated but still have a full to-do list, is to take a short break and then come back and do one very short, simple task.
