  1. Take a moment away from your computer and desk

  2. Close your eyes and think of your top three goals for today

  3. Evaluate the progress of those goals. 

  4. Ask yourself if these goals are achievable for today.

  5. Think of the steps you need to take to achieve the goals.

  6. Open your eyes. Find a stationary point to focus your mind and eyes (a tree limb, a stop sign, a tile on the floor, etc.)

  7. Focus just on that stationary point for 30 secs. Think of only focusing on that point. 

  8. After the 30 secs of focusing, return to your desk and write down your 3 goals for today.

  9. Restart work with your focused goals in mind.
