4. Write down your appointments. Before saying “yes” or “no”, give yourself twenty-four hours to think about whether the opportunity fits into what you value most. Only commit to those things that fit into your priorities.
5. Use other Today List blocks wisely. List important emails that must be sent, messages or notes from the day, errands to run, and a list of things you need when you’re out.
