define your goals the night before

work smarter

“If the first thing you do in the morning is check your email, you’re setting yourself up for a day filled with reactive work. This can easily lock you into a cycle of dealing with pseudo-emergencies well into your evenings, leaving you drained and with little to no control over your larger priorities.

Tim Ferriss, author of The 4-Hour Workweek offers some simple advice on how to focus on your goals: define your one or two most important to-dos before dinner, the day before.

Dan Pink, the NYT bestselling author of Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us, gives similar advice: by spending some time the night before to write your goals down for the following day, you’ll return to the driver’s seat.
