Lately, my typical day is less than typical. I've been on a tear for about 12 months with side projects. This means that my day is jammed. But here is a glimpse...
- 5-6:00am - wake up, shower, daily scripture.
- 6-7:30am - Work on side projects: Stripe Transfer customer projects, coding, photography, or CCBUILT episode editing.
- 7:30am - drive to work, listen to podcast via Apple Podcasts.
- 8am - Prep for the day at work.
- 10am - On Monday and Wednesday I have a rather lengthy reoccuring meeting. My stance on meetings hasn't really changed - however, I'm trying to be a good colleague. On Tuesday and Thursday I'm working and on Friday I'm conducting a Bible study.
- 12pm - Lunch. Usually I try to catch up on the now distributed social web - NetNewswire, Mastodon, Threads, Instagram - in that order.
- 1-4pm - Monday through Thursday I try to fill this with work as much as possible. On Friday's we're working on a car for CCBUILT (which also including recording video and taking photographs).
- 5-10pm - Sometimes side projects, in the winter darkroom printing, a lot of YouTube (I'm now paying for Premium because I watch so much YouTube).
I accomplish an incredible amount in my side project time in the early morning. I'm definitely a morning person. Having that time be compressed has served me very well. I'm far less productive in the evening after working about 11 hours. Almost daily I wish I did more at night.
My current pace feels untenable. I've never been this busy. I'm hoping something changes soon.
