Techniques

Start with inspiration — colour combo, landscape, etc.
Use figure references for anatomy
Paint in layers — block in shadows first, then skin tone — keep it thin
Underpaint (paint an entire paper with a single colour to instill a tone or feeling)
Use a hairdryer to dry your layers
Use a hairdryer to cure swimmer's ear
Complete a painting in a single sitting (2–6 hours)
Batch videos, especially when lighting/hair/make-up is required
Watch a speed version of your video first, then record it again in real-time
Increase contrast and colour-depth in Photoshop — with the aim to match real-life colours
Use planners and lists — "bullet journal"

Habits

Keep supplies organized in clear cases — jars, boxes, etc.
Create an inspiring workspace, use personal items and motifs
Aim for a consistent wake-up time (maybe 8 am)
Reply to comments and emails first thing in the morning
Read while you eat, and before you go to bed
Don't be so hard on yourself (regarding time management or inconsistency)
List out your tasks for the next day
