More rest, more (less) work

I recently made the following changes to my schedule:

  1. Sleeping in until fully rested.
  2. No meetings during the week.
  3. Breaking my day into task-based sections.
  4. Taking a daily break for a walk and snack at a local cafe.

I think I’m onto something, and I’ve noticed the following results:

  1. I get more work done.
  2. I enjoy my work a lot more.
  3. I complete tasks more rapidly.
  4. I need fewer breaks when working.

Constant course correction seems to be the name of the game.

Also, these banana muffins I’ve been on lately.
