Back in the days when "work" consisted of the assignments teachers doled out and my bosses were my parents, I couldn't do homework unless the TV or stereo blared.
I stopped getting complaints about my dubious study habits when I consistently made the honor roll.
Now that I'm the boss, results are still important. It's OK to emulate extraordinarily productive writer Michael Bracken and work on multiple projects at the same time IF I actually finish and submit those projects on a timely basis.
I give myself permission to do a load or two of wash during working hours ... unless all I've accomplished at the end of the day is laundry!
Are you an easy going boss who doesn't grumble so long as the work is getting done, or a no nonsense boss with all sorts of rules like no e-mail until the day's quota of words is finished?
You're the only one who can decide what kind of boss you need to be to encourage yourself to get the job done.
May the Muse be kind!!
