Ban multitasking

Rather than constantly doing three (or more!) very different things at once, save up similar errands to do together. For example, set aside a specific time when you check your voice mail and return calls, instead of doing so throughout the day. Or, if you can, group all family- or kid-related errands and calls into one time of day. (Think of spas, which devote entire buildings or areas to a single type of activity.)
