Manage Your Day-to-Day will show you how to:
  1. Stop letting other people (and incoming messages!) dictate your daily to-do list.
  2. Fend off constant interruption and carve out a sacred space for "getting into the zone".
  3. Conquer information overload and break your addiction to obsessively checking your phone or email.
  4. Let go of the idea of "inbox zero" and optimize the time you spend on email and social media.
  5. Find the right balance of working productively and recharging to keep your energy high.
  6. Hotwire your brain for a-ha moments and push through creative blocks.
