Not the best
if you let your mind wander when you really have
to focus on a particular task.
the task completed
With wandering thoughts
Ones full potential.
- How do you adhere to your your deep work schedule?
- What is that you do to keep being focused?
- How do you prioitize to choose which task to complete for your deep work session?
- Do you stop deep work when time is up or keep going as long as you’re in the flow?
- What is something I can do right now to increase my productivity?
Occasionally, I will think those periods of wandering thoughts allow me to be creative. However, I spend too long doing it and then I realize I haven’t completed my period of focused work. Then I chastise myself for wasting time. The cycle goes on… complimenting myself for my creative wandering thoughts then berating myself for wasting time.
Eating right, exercising, meditating, sleeping well, and sticking to my routines and rituals does allow me to get focused work accomplished and then perhaps I should try to let my mind have wandering thoughts and rather than berating myself, I should try to gently guide myself back to accomplishing work- or if I have completed my work, I should enjoy the wandering thoughts for a little bit of time!?
