Your work goals should be realistic and you should plan each week and day carefully. Forecast the time you will need for all significant tasks and afterwards review how much time you actually needed. Don't overschedule your day so you have to break appointments at the last minute. Remember to give yourself some quiet thinking time before an important meeting and, when possible, delegate.
