In the last article, It Takes Time to Build Something Great we thought about the idea of spending a long period of time to create something truly great.

So where do we find time to get all this work done? The book Manage your day-to-day recommends routines as a way of getting into a regular rhythm of creating things. Routines train your mind to get into “creative” mode. They also help you plan your time more predictably.

Set up a weekly schedule of when you will work and for how long. This will ensure you always have time set aside to do your (great) work.
