DaedTech Digest: Good Times, New Habits
Kind of a light digest this week. I’ve been on the move, and we’re taking sort of a vacation. I mean, the work rolls on, but we’ve got folks visiting us, so I’m trying to do the vacation thing, in my spare time.
However I fare, this will result in a sparse digest post this week.
As I mentioned last week, we’re spending our time in the lower Florida Keys. And we’re definitely enjoying it. Life down here is slow-paced, consistently-temperatured, and pretty.
In fact, life down here is so nice that it’s inspired me to slightly re-structure my work life. Instead of rolling out of bed and getting started immediately, as has been my habit, I’ve slowed things down. Now, I get up, make a coffee, and read outside for half an hour or so, on the patio, before really getting going.
And I’m enjoying that immensely. Not only is the quiet time nice, but I actually feel more productive once I start working.
So find a way to take some time off and to clear your head. Maybe it’s for an hour, like I’ve mentioned, or maybe more. Maybe even a full day fishing charter, as pictured below, with Amanda fishing for yellow tailed snapper. But whatever it is, make it something.
- I feel that it almost goes without saying… but, in case I haven’t mentioned it, Trello! You can use it for anything from the humble to-do list to elaborate workflows.
- Another longtime favorite of mine is the 538. If you like an equal-opportunity, data-driven breakdown of sports and politics, without the BS, you’ll enjoy.
- Here’s a Facebook Live we did about how writing can improve your overall communication skills.
- And here’s another Facebook Live about what getaway week is like in the life of a slow traveler.
And, as always, have yourselves a great weekend,
