I have tried many things but what has worked for me lately is what I call a “block schedule”. I assign my self an hour or two hours and set the timer. This fools me into not thinking about EVERYTHING else because I know that I have the rest of the day to work on any of the other things that are crowding into my head. This helps me focus on one task or goal for the hour or two. Then I set up a goal to accomplish so I have a stopping point. Sort 5 folders or work on the 8 things I need to get my business off the ground. This works for me because there IS so much to do and if I look at all of it I get paralyzed but setting up a specific goal and a set time period make it all seem more achievable and less overwhelming. I hope this helps.
