Create habits and rituals instead of waiting for inspiration.

If you support your work with habits and rituals, you will have the power to produce creative, intelligent, and deep work at will.


  1. Choose a place and time for deep work.
    Choose a place and schedule your time for work. Stick to this place and schedule.
  2. Track your productivity.
    You may want to track your productivity in terms of hours worked, number of pages written, number of sales made, etc. Also, decide where you’ll keep it—e.g., in an online spreadsheet or a notebook.
  3. Do things that help you maintain focus.
    For example, scheduling a short walk when you feel tired can help you remain energetic.
