Want to get more writing done? Or, indeed, any work that involves sitting at a computer. Buy yourself a cheap kitchen timer and choose a time between 15 minutes and, say, 35 minutes (start small).
Press Start and work on your project exclusively until the beeper goes off.
During this time, you must do nothing other than work on your project – most importantly, no Facebook, Twitter or email checking.
When the beeper goes off, give yourself a 5-10 minute break (go for a stroll, check your social media) and then book yourself in for another block of time. You’ll be amazed how much you’ll get done.
