I do not take credit for this idea, I think it was sailah, Fab418, Drjoe or Larryboy that gave me this idea...it is a good one though because not only does it help you focus forward, it helps you if you get stuck on some little detail, just move to something else and come back to the issue later. Then you also get to see all of the progress you HAVE made which keeps you focused forward.
This only works if you have any shop space at all though...worst case scenario, even a note book will work, just keep it handy.
Keep it up.
