Deep work.

This is a draft post. Find out more about what that means. Get in touch if this post could use an improvement.

I struggle with deep work. I think many of us do. There are so many buzz-buzz happening… on my laptop, phone, and even elsewhere. Yes, I just made a new phrase: buzz-buzz.

Today, I turned on my desktop’s Do Not Disturb mode, quit all IM apps (mainly just XMPP πŸ˜‰), practiced restraint on opening fedi (except for tooting tech related vents or asking for help), and guess what? Work went well!

I even began my day by half-forcing myself to sit through a forty-minute-long YouTube video before starting work at the usual time. It was enjoyable!

I’m going to try and cultivate this “focus” more.
