Define clearly when you work and when you relax.

Tim Urban confessed that when he did not have a clear working schedule, he was constantly in work mode. He never worked hard, and he never had free vacations.

Setting a clear line between the time he works and his free time made him more productive and happy.


  1. Set hours in your calendar for your work and follow the schedule.
  2. When there is leisure time, don’t do any work. Zero.
  3. If you work from home, consider going to coffee shops or co-working places to draw a clear line between work and leisure time.
