I had my most productive day in ages today, writing nearly 4,000 words, including some that had been hanging over my head for ages. I was able to do it, despite spending some time coping with a big server outage (a UPS failed), because… well, I left the office and went to a cafe with no internet. I’ve been gradually dropping some of my connectivity in the name of getting more done- turning off all my planets from 9am-5pm, for example, and mostly dropping off IRC. But this was the first time in forever I’ve ignored email and the phone for a day. And wow, it was great. I can’t exactly turn off email 9-5, at least not in my current job, and I don’t really want to either. So I guess I have to figure out a better balance than I have had in the past. Will be interesting to play with.
