The truth is, there is no perfect “moment” the best time is NOW. You’ll see that once the ball is rolling you will find your rhythm, and you won’t have wasted a few days, weeks or months waiting for that right moment because you have already begun.

Let your family, friends and work colleagues know that you have delegated a certain time period for your important tasks so that you are able to get into the zone without any distractions. A study done at the University of California showed that it took people an average of 25mins and 26sec to get back into focus after an interruption!!
4: Make lists & Prioritise them- Listing all your tasks for the day is an easy way to keep track of what needs doing. It’s also a good way to stay motivated, we get a great sense of achievement after crossing things off! Prioritise your lists in order of importance to make sure you finish your most important task by the end of the day.
