3. How are you using those 15 minute breaks and lunch hours?  Think about what it is you want to do you should be using lunch breaks to do research, read books, engage in meetings and discussions with individuals in the field you are trying to pursue.  You should know exactly what you need to get done in a given time and be sure to give enough time to get deadline accomplished.  Maximize the time you have and be intentional with your time.
