Plan a realistic amount of work

Instead of having the attitude of "let's see how much I can accomplish today", set realistic expectations beforehand for what you plan to get done during a single day.

This allows you to

  • Feel a sense of accomplishment with each day
  • Avoid the feel of work piling up to an endless string of tasks
  • Get stuff done that you tend to procrastinate on (push further down the priorities que)
  • Reduces the risk of burnout

Planning a realistic amount of work each day means setting a realistic/pessimistic daily plannable time and sticking to it when planning a single day.
