Chris McLeod’s typical day
Like most people I suspect I have days where I don’t feel like I’ve actually achieved anything, and others where I’m amazed by how much it seems I’ve made it through. I find the trick is to just keep going steady. Those really productive days are usually the culmination of work you pushed yourself through on the slower days.
Like Chris, I have times where I leave work feeling overwhelmed and think that nothing got done. Other days I leave feeling like superman.
My trick to combat this feeling is similar to the trick to begin a productive day – choose something small that I can be successful at. Pick one thing that I can start and finish. That usually helps a lot. So if I have a few of these sprinkled throughout my day I generally feel better.
