1. Slow it down

The other day I had two deadlines for applications I felt I was taking a long time to complete. I decided to exaggerate the feeling of slowness further. And then, as is probably not a surprise, I finished them quickly. In doing them more slowly, I short-circuited all the work it was taking to have the constant stream of assessment of pace and then when that energy was freed up to do the actual work, everything came together readily.
