Turn off your e-mail

Here’s an interesting productivity tip, via LifeHacker:

Get one thing done first - THEN check your email:

Author of Never Check Email in the Morning Julie Morgenstern suggests spending the first hour of your workday e-mail free. Choose one task - even a small one - and tackle it first thing. Accomplishing something out of the gate sets the tone for the rest of your day and guarantees that no matter how many fires you're tasked with putting out the minute you open your email client, you still can say that you got something done. Once you're "open for business" and paying attention to incoming requests, it's too easy to get swept away into the craziness. So get your day started off on the right foot, with just one thing done.
