First of all, what work am I talking about. In my case the work I've in mind for this short para that I'm writing is, scheduling a task.
How can we schedule a task when we are confused? You can simply pick a piece of paper and start putting the tasks you need to do. Or a better version is, simply lay down and ask yourself what are the 3 immediate tasks you have to do. The immediate priority ones. And start with them. Until they are done, don't jump to other tasks.
I've given mine. What are Your tips I'd love to hear.
