Checklists.

Write one every night of stuff you want to get done in the morning. Ryan Holiday suggests an index card and a sharpie - then you aren't tempted to write too much.

Start the morning by looking at the index card. Take it with you if you have to, but check off the boxes as you go.

End of the day, look at your index card. If the task was important, put it on the new index card. If it's not, forget it. Move on. Don't let it drag you down.

But keep the index cards.

Look at them every month and recognize that you did all that.

I’ve actually started a mini journal in a similar vein. At the beginning of the (work) day, I ask myself what two things matter today. Then, at the end of the day, I write down two things that contributed to making the day great, as well as the stuff that is on my mind.

Despite it only taking a minute or two, it is surprisingly effective at getting me in the right mindset for the day and being happier with how the day went.

Or, with a Geordie accent:

I can see how that works. Making only two things your focus makes things that much clearer.

For 'not a programmer' you seem to have a good handle on hierarchical heaps and queues. ;)

People with macular degeneration can still get around, even though they have a blind spot obscuring 90% of their view.
