Being a cyber security consultant, requires high discipline of self motivation, and stay on top of the task that you need to delivery to the client. Why this is assumed that everyone should behave and play the part, most of the consultants they have trouble doing this. I have a few tips and tools to stay on the task.
Tracking time – Toggl
Planning and Scheduling – Calendar (Schedule everything and put this as calendar entry – things that are scheduled are the things that get done)
Pomodoro Technique – Set timer for 25 mins work, 5 minutes break. You can use an app (mobile / WebApp) — I use Mobile/desktop App Focus To-Do and Garmin Watch. I should add during the break apart from doing tea, do anything physical like 10 pushups, wall-sits, a quick sprint or go out for a fresh air walk.
PS: Make sure you spend your weekend wisely so to minimise burnout 🙂
