Working on having a shutdown ritual every day at the end of the work day.This combined with Cal Newport’s planning each day in a big red notebook works well. I get to look at what I tried to set out to do and then see how well it came together. Also helps to start to see the big picture, trying to do deep work.
On coming in late and leaving late
Right now the office is empty, which is great for wrapping up, it’s easy to have a clear mind in silence.
However I dont think this is very good for deep work. I think a lot of my best work comes early in the morning, and with so many people around its hard not to get distracted.
