I’ll tell you now, this week has been CRAZY! I’ve been switching routines, working from the office full-time and now back working from home (which I prefer).
But alongside this, there’s a massive push to get the content for :scale studio ready by the end of this month as well as staying on track for all the other content too.
But something interesting happened.
I am a total night owl. I don’t like being woken up and I don’t really enjoy waking up early which means most of my work happens late at night. But, since I’m under pressure and the normal work-day leaves little time for extra-curricular stuff, I decided to stick to my office routine, and instead of a commute, I use the hour to catch up on projects.
It’s called my ⚡ Power Hour. This is where I get all my important but not urgent tasks done. Replying to emails, finishing off small tasks from the previous week, giving advice, DMs, meetings, calendar blocking - that kind of thing.
And it’s been doing wonders. No seriously. Now, I’m not showing up for work having run down the stairs at the last minute and greeting my colleagues with a groggy face. Instead, I’m a bit more relaxed (still tired) but slightly more awake.
I think part of it is trying not to make it an official thing - kind of like this newsletter. If I treat this as a task or that I have to wake up early, I probably won’t do it. But instead, I’m just going with the flow, thinking about the enjoyable aspects!
