Turn the page on yesterday. Only everthink about today and tomorrow.
Don't distract yourself with either thesuccesses or failures of the past. Focus instead on what's in front of you.
Set deadlines for everything.
Spending too much time on a project orkeeping it on the backburner for too long will lead to stagnation. Get thingsdone and move on.
Always take notes.
Don't assume you'll remember every goodidea that comes into your head during the day. It doesn't matter if it's anotebook, whiteboard, or an app like Evernote--just write stuff down.
Write down any unrelated thoughts thatpop up when you're in the zone, so that they don't linger as distractions.
You'll get them out of the way withoutlosing them.
