I think it’s our habits.
What do we habitually do when we are
..given extra work?
..pushed for time?
..have some spare time?
..up against a deadline?
..spinning lots of plates?

Here’s an easy one…
At the end of each working day, get in the habit of writing down the five things you want to achieve for the next day. Leave this list where you will find it in the morning.

My best wishes, Paul
