Work Routine: How do YOU do it? (Really!)
There goes another work routine—I’m back on the road.
I’ve just finished housesitting for a week in San Jose. It seems to take me two to three days to get into the groove of a place before I can maintain a solid work routine.
That’s not okay.
Part of my goal with Roadwritten and my career as a writer in general is to be able to move. I can’t let my productivity rhythm get thrown off just because my surroundings change.
I slept in 12 different places last month (alone, thank you very much). In December, I’ve clocked three so far. Vaguely ridiculous.
The goal is this: no matter where I wake up, do exactly the same thing for the first several hours. Follow a morning routine that streams into an afternoon workflow.
Maybe that’s asking a lot, but other people do it, so I want to be able to do it.
I have the morning routine down (journal, meditate, stretch, tea), but sometimes it doesn’t keep me moving through to the point where I actually sit down to type.
What do I do instead? I…don’t…know.
Does that happen to you? Complete loss of time accountability? I don’t watch TV. I don’t surf. I don’t social media (so much). Am I just blacking out?
I feel like this is a very boo-hoo-me-centric post, so: I’m sorry. Really. But can you help me?
What do you do? How do you keep a workflow when the ADD child inside encourages you to measure out servings of tea for your upcoming travels instead of work?
