So I have realized that some things change a bit as you get older. As I live alone here in Monaco and I work all alone as well, it does get a little lonely at times. In the past I had no problem crushing it alone for hours, but I think I have noticed a slight change in this over the past couple years. Now I feel like I have to force myself a bit to get up and go and motivation can sometimes feel a little harder to find. On the good side I guess the motivation has shifted a bit as I now seem to like meetings a lot more and work on the creative process there. So I guess the motivation is the same but just in a different way.
The only problem is that when I am here in Monaco, 110% of the work is 110% alone. Needless to say this does mean that I tend to get out for lunch and meet people, but I really dont like people that go out for lunch. I like people that grab a power bar and keep on working non stop 24/7! I guess it me evolving and appreciating a nice conversation, but to be honest I dont like the way I am heading.(I feel like Ari Gold who wants to get back to his old self) I like the obsessed me that hates to get out and waste time.
So today I have set up a clear schedule of how the hours should be handled to get the most out of the day and still get some form of human interaction!
- 6-11 e mails
- 11-13 Work out (alone)
- 13-14 Lunch at home and e mails.
- 15-16 work
- 16— Human interation time
Not sure if this is a killer set up, but I don know that when I get out and meet people I feel like a slacker and that I am not getting the job done, so I guess I am just trying to set some working hours like if I was at an office so that I feel free when I am not working! The only downside is that the first human interaction I get is at 4pm…
