Don’t just keep to-do or project lists. Have a method that actually helps you process information by parsing what’s actionable or not, select what to execute on, and then prioritize, schedule or otherwise route it. Without geeking out on it, I’ve found that GTD via an app called OmniFocus has been very helpful. I work almost completely from home spend my days mostly auditioning, but whenever my (CRM) queue there is clear for a given hour or three, if I’m ever unsure as to what the most important thing I should be working on is, I just check that app, which also sends me task reminders anyway. Normally, any given day I’m never getting done everything that I’d like to, but I’m also at least never forgetting about anything that needs to get done; nothing is ever completely falling through the cracks. I’m never at a loss for something to work on to stay productive.
