First quarter, things were so crazy I had gone to blocking off specific days for specific projects. I had gotten into a comfortable rhythm with my schedule and was able to move quite a few things forward quickly.
Second quarter, things lightened up a bit and I went back to blocking off multiple projects per day in 2-3 hour chunks.
Then this week, two deadlines have me – unexpectedly – back to dedicating entire days to a project (and it’s only Tuesday!).
I had forgotten the sense of accomplishment and flow that comes with plowing through one thing, uninterrupted for 6 hours.
So, yes, I’ll be instituting 1 project / day on the calendar moving forward.
This is also consistent with both the Pomodoro Technique and the Cult of Done.
