How I Work

Posted by A Tobias 2 years ago
For years now, I've tried to maximise my productivity by using various self-made timetables and to do lists and the like, with mixed results. Usually they worked wonders for about a week or so, then the motivation fizzled out and I fell back into old habits and procrastination. However, each new attempt built on the last, and a few months ago I feel I did come up with something that works relatively well for me, and has added much-needed structure to my work days consistently for the last few months. I'd like to talk about my methods here, partly because I'm embarrassed about delaying with message replies or about imagined thoughts of people thinking I'm 'not doing anything' or that I'm taking forever to get MARDEK done, BUT also because I know I'm not the only one who struggles with these things, and I know I always like reading about what has worked for other people so then I might get some inspiration from them.

Burnout

Posted by A Tobias 2 years ago
MARDEK's been 'almost done' for ages now. It really should have been finished days or even weeks ago, but I've noticed that the stronger I push myself to get through the final stretch, the more drained and exhausted I feel, and the less I get done each day. I'd like to write a bit about the thoughts and feelings behind this, as well as I suppose realisations I've had about the creative process and my own best working habits. I'll also talk a bit about how much of MARDEK remains to be done (not much, basically).

30 Day Challenge

Posted by A Tobias 3 years ago
Have you ever heard of the '30 Day Challenge'? Essentially, it takes about thirty days to form a habit, some people probably said at some point, so if you want to pick up a new hobby or skill or add a certain activity to your daily routine, then you should try to do it every day for 30 days, after which you'll either know for sure that it's not for you, or it'll have become ingrained in such a way that it's harder to stop than it is to continue with it.

Productivity Again!

Posted by A Tobias 3 years ago
I've been very focused and productive over the last few days, and it's left me feeling positive and satisfied with what I've achieved each day... which is wonderful compared to the frustration and despair I feel after wasting a day procrastinating. This kind of focus didn't happen randomly; it was a result of experimenting again with productivity-boosting techniques that I wrote about before, but which I'll cover again with some new thoughts.

I need to be more productive!!1

Posted by A Tobias 3 years ago
Looking back on my personal development (or rather, descent into madness) over the last few years has made me eager to change my ways for the better, both in terms of personal attitude and my approach to productivity! As such, I've made a tool for myself that'll hopefully encourage me to be more productive...
