Here are some of the strategies that they recommended for dealing with Information Overload and the presssure to mulittask:

* Turn off your notifications so that you can get engaged and stay engaged in your thinking.
* Keep a list of what you have accomplished. Checking off items on your list gives you a balance between what is to be done and what has been done.
* Keep your head clear – get your action items out of there! This is the number one interruption that professionals have – interrupting themselves.
Engage in ALL your life – not just work. Business is compelling with goals, immediate deadlines – an adrenaline rush.  Create your whole life to be engaging – health, family, social, giving.
Put a tray in your workspace and tell people to put items there and you will take care of them.
Become aware of the satisfaction you have at the end of the day (on a scale of 1-10).  Consistently attack the items that are rated low and add more of the items rated high
Call the day ‘complete’ before heading to bed. Each and every day, we are doing the best we can.  It is good enough.
