How often do you find yourself distracted or looking at a mountain of activities with no idea where to start? Do you ever start working on a blog post or editing a design, then you get an email notification, and the next thing you know you’ve searched Google for an hour to answer that client, only to realize you missed your window to finish that original task – which was – wait, what was I working on again?
