I had an obligation this week that required some travel and a full 24 hours that I couldn’t really focus on work. Just to make things interesting, my computer chose this time to have a mechanical issue, requiring me to get my backup computer set up with a fresh operating system and swap all of my stuff over to it. All of that squeezed a bunch of life out of me, and put me into full alert realizing that I have two orders which had plenty of time left now coming close to deadline.
After spending half of my day (plus an all-nighter) getting the backup computer rolling, so I can send off my other computer for service, I somehow managed to come up with another 700 words on a topic that I was really struggling with for days. Now that I have direction, and only a little further to complete that gig, I can focus on getting the other order way closer to completion, and pronto.
I definitely perform better when the pressure is on.
I’ve been working on this big project for weeks now, it’ll be great to put it behind me and get back to more manageable pieces.
