"My goal is to avoid touching something more than
once. In general, if there is something that I know I
need to do, I just go ahead and do it. Over time, this
strategy saves me time and stress."
"If I'm working on something, I can get so focused - I have to be careful. A lot of times I'll use the timer on my phone to remind myself that I have a call scheduled because I can get lost in something and not look up for an hour and a half, or longer."
