Schedule tasks with mental capacity in mind.

Mental capacity changes throughout the day, so tasks should be scheduled such that important and mentally intensive tasks come before less important intensive tasks or tasks that will otherwise brequire fewer resources. Don’t focus on tasks that will be more pertinent later. Hardest work first. Schedule according to focus type.rR1
