GREAT WORK BEFORE EVERYTHING ELSE

Do your most meaningful creative work at the beginning of your day, and leave “reactive work”—like responding to e-mail or other messages—for later.

JUMP-START YOUR CREATIVITY

Establish “associative triggers”—such as listening to the same music or arranging your desk in a certain way—that tell your mind it’s time to get down to work.

FEEL THE FREQUENCY

Commit to working on your project at consistent intervals—ideally every day—to build creative muscle and momentum over time.

PULSE AND PAUSE 

Move rhythmically between spending and renewing your energy by working in ninety-minute bursts and then taking a break.

GET LONELY

Make a point of spending some time alone each day. It’s a way to observe unproductive habits and thought processes, and to calm your mind.

DON’T WAIT FOR MOODS 

Show up, whether you feel inspired or not.
