When it’s imperative to get into a flow state where you’re completely focused on the task at hand, schedule and name your work sessions on your calendar. By giving them specific names and objectives, you create an event and set a serious tone for what needs to get done.
If you think about it, we’re playing numerous roles and characters in our day-to-day lives. Why not bring that spirit to our work? Instead of thinking that you “have to” write each morning, create an avatar and specific mission for your writing. Block out that time, and devote your energy to the purpose of the event you created.
