The final lesson for you here is mentally dividing the items on your to-do list by zone levels. These levels could be:
1. When I’m at my best
2. Business tasks I can do on auto-pilot
3. Busy tasks that must be done but don’t require mental challenge
4. Things you do as long as you are not asleep
Then, pick the task to be performed based on your physical, mental, and motivation at that time.
