      The only thing that keeps me productive is a strict, regimented schedule. But any deviance, like a task taking longer than normal, or anything of the like, ruins the entire day. Think that one scene from The Emperor’s New Groove when Kuzsco yells at the old man for “throwing off his groove.”

      Today I started on schoolwork an hour late, and the whole day was shot. How can I work around this?

      Put bumper appointments around your schedule so it has embedded flexibility.

      Make an appointment for a “Power Hour” where you focus on little administrative things like email, calendar, quickie follow-ups, etc.

      Then, for your big things, you can do “Travel or Prep” before and “overflow” after.
