    I am not the author of the following paragraph, but I relate to it.

    I had been slicing my time into tinier and tinier sections just to try and fit everything I wanted to do into my day, and it was making me crazy. My brain just doesn't stretch that way. Turning off the email and doing just one task for a few hours had a huge effect. It was as if finally the gears were grabbing hold and turning my work in a forward direction. It was wonderful, and I employ the strategy of focusing on one task and only one task all the time now.​

    This is not to say that email and other client interaction isn't part of the work, because it's crucial. (And I enjoy it!) But it seems important to me to set aside a certain amount of uninterrupted time for work that requires maximum focus.
