It’s hard to share my workflow in complete detail, but here are some broad strokes:

One of the things that make this work is that I’m very disciplined about checking my to do list, and having it drive the work I do. I’m also sufficiently motivated to do all of the work I do that starting and finishing a 15-minute task is rarely that difficult.

The big downside of these practices is that my days can feel like a fairly mechanical race to check things off my daily list. The upside is that I get a lot done!
