One of the most undervalued skills is the ability to set a routine and stick to it.
Modern workflow is constantly inundated by distractions which can knock us off our game.

Even as I tried to write the content above, I was distracted to send out an email, update my books read on shelfari and start building gift lists for Christmas. I also opened four tabs that I want to look at when I’m done with this post.
