Tell us your tried and true techniques for focusing when that deadline looms and you need to get work done. In other words, how do you avoid wasted days and wasted nights?

Midnight Mon Night: I should get to bed soon.  I need to be at the college between 9 and 9:30 tomorrow morning.

Just a little more Pinterest time.

3 am: No, really I need to go to bed.

Are there any more likes, comments, followers on WordPress

3:30 am — headed to bed

7 am — alarm goes off

I can sleep til 8

7:59 — glance at clock

I can sleep til… Let’s see.  I need to be at the college between 9 and 9:30, so I need to leave the apartment by 8:45…wait if I make it to the college by 9:30, then I don’t have to leave the apartment until 9:15.  I can shower in 15 minutes and another 15 min to get ready and be out the door.  Ok, I need to be up by 8:45.

 

8:30  I really should just get up.

8:40 Just 5 more minutes to sleep

8:43 – glance

8:44 –glance

8:46 —  Ugh I’m late

8:48 —  Ok, ok, I’m up

9:08 — out of shower putting on clothes

get sidetracked

9:21 — Shit!  I need to leave.  

9:40 — on campus

Good thing I don’t need to be in the classroom until 9:50
