    It is remarkable that people who choose to take a step back from modern technology and daily distractions actually become more successful in their chosen fields. The modern times have developed the misconception that social media, electronic mail, text messaging, and other networking tools intended to connect you to the world will help get you ahead in your career.

    The concept of a schedule on paper is to ensure that you are prioritizing only the important tasks, not to ensure that you are sticking to the schedule seamlessly. Using this practice, you will see how much time you actually have for deep work and just how much you can do in a single day. Of course, you won't always be able to work without a hitch. Adjust your schedule accordingly to work around these difficulties.

    A lot of people spend huge chunks of their day on autopilot, not thinking or minding what they should be currently doing. This is the reason why you can be easily occupied by distractions that prevent you from doing your job. Perhaps you even try to begin any activity by asking yourself what task you should start with, but even contemplation is only slightly effective. If outlining an activity isn't working out, try outlining your whole day down to the minute. Make a schedule that displays the hours you want to work on a task. Split the hours into blocks of time no less than thirty minutes, draw these blocks around the time you're dividing, and select the activity you want to designate to a specific block. If you want to use three hours to article writing, for example, box those three hours on your schedule and label them. Include blocks dedicated for lunch breaks and leisure on your schedule, so you won't feel too stressed checking them off throughout the day. In order to work seamlessly, prepare blocks of similar things together in a single, large block. For example, rather than creating a block for answering particular emails only, create a larger one for answering all your received emails.
