It is said that the Da Vinci Code Dan Brown makes an hourglass on his desk and, at times, keep a script to do push-ups, sit-ups and extends. Ritual trigger tells your mind it’s time to work.
Talking to yourself – Explain what you are actually trying to say. It actually works very well for me, I even made a practice of reading aloud my articles before posting to see how they sound, and often ends up doing some fine tuning.
