Oh man, that's frustrating. It happens to me all the time too. First, try
cutting out all distractions. Go somewhere where you can work by yourself,
turn off the phone and close the email. Then pick a task, and don't stop
until you're done. That's what works for me anyway. 
	Another thing you can try is taking a half hour away and doing
whatever clears your head. Take a brisk walk, meditate, whatever works for
	Just a few random thoughts, hope they help.

I'm sitting here writing this to you after an entire day has passed with
little work done. I have a million things to do in the next week, and need
every minute of the time I have, but can't seem to stay focussed on a task
for any length of time. My mind wanders too much or I find something else to
do, often less urgent, to occupy my time. Any suggestions of things to do
that would make focussing on one given task, and being motivated to do that
task, easier for me?
Thank you very much,
