Finally, a day where I could have enough time to get to a deep work state. Finished Pomodoro 8 before 3pm. I finished my work time around 630 to travel to another meeting.
Though distractions kept happening on the other half of the day, at least for the initial half, I was able to grind out and accomplish things. It’s definitely better if you can just do most of the things you planned right at the start of the day. It saves you the trouble to grinding it out later in the day. Meetings has been the biggest issue the past week. I definitely hate meetings but with the nature of our startup at this current point, the meetings are must.
Lesson 1: Maximize that extra time in the morning and don’t take it for granted.
Lesson 2: Have other people on board with your deep work schedule
Lesson 3: Schedule your deep work time ahead of schedule so you can add the meetings and other distractions around it.
So, as for today… as I mentioned last time, I wanted to use this month as the challenge to see how I would struggle because of all the holidays and events. True enough, I have been struggling the past days.
I need to step it up. Even if today is a holiday and a personal day, it’s no reason to not be productive this early in the morning while everybody’s sleeping.
Today’s theme is Self Dev so I need to finish a book but I also have to catch up and create a blog post. Game time.
