1. Take morning minutes
2. Refocus for one minute every hour
3. Take evening minutes
4. Habitualize/ritualize anything repetitive
5. Use checklists (with time estimates)
6. Sprint, then rest

For what it’s worth – and as a bit of an insider view into my process – I’m doing whatever I can do to speed up or eliminate entirely “deck-making” tasks.

And (comparatively) simple-to-produce text documents are far easier for me to produce than a deck of slides.
