When you wake up, grab yourself a cup of coffee, sit down and write/type down all your to-dos for the day. If you don’t feel comfortable or simply don’t have the time to do this in the morning, do it the night before. Grab your planner or your phone and write everything – and I mean everything- down.
Set a schedule for yourself and follow it! If you are easily distracted by your phone, place it across the room, or even better, in a whole different room. If you find yourself browsing endlessly through facebook on your computer, you can get apps to block certain websites. I do this a lot, especially when I have to study. I normally block facebook, Tumblr, Bloglovin and Pinterest.
Prioritize! I can’t even begin to tell you how important this is! If there’s a task you need to do today, do it! Don’t give yourself excuses. When writing your to-do list, write the most important task on top and only do the rest of the tasks after you have completed that/those one(s).
Have a ton of calls to make? Make them all at once. Have a ton of emails to reply to? Reply to them all at once. It’s way easier to complete everything on your to-do if you group similar tasks, trust me.
If you aren’t finished with a task, don’t go and do another one without finishing it. This will only make your brain confused and you’ll end up not doing either of the things.
