I really struggled with focus and concentration during my placement year for a time, particularly on big projects. A lot of what you suggested definitely worked for me. I made a post-it note Kanban board on my desk to break my work down into chunks and visualise what I needed to do and when. It also feels so great when you can move things into the 'done' pile. Similar thing (Trello) helped massively for time management during my final year of university. Helps so much for focusing when I can break things up into smaller tasks that are considerably less daunting.
Thanks for the suggestions though. Going to keep these in mind for future projects!
You're welcome. I also love that feeling when I complete certain tasks on my todo-notes. Super fulfilling!
