Just a single thing - project goals.

Nothing gets me more productive than knowing there is a specific goal that I can put my focus into.

Getting these goals involves clearing up requirements, validating assumptions, removing unknowns, and just basically paving a clear way to your goal.

It doesn't matter whether it's noisy or I'm sleepy or tired - as long as there's a clear goal, I'm productive.

Super interesting take. Goals can be very powerful, indeed. How fine-granular are your goals?
