Define purpose, set expectations with time investments

To be more effective with time, define the purpose, expectations and desired outcomes before beginning. Take time to finish well, make notes to pick up the next time, and then transition to next item on schedule.

It’s easy to be distracted, including by relatively unimportant items within a project. These can feel like effective use of time because they are correct subject - and often they are obfuscating the real items to work on.
