The guilt can be crushing. Everyone seems to be getting stuff done, except you. You drag yourself out of bed, go to work, start checking email, start deleting, then poof, it’s noon. Lunch, perhaps at your desk, then some awful meetings, then it’s 3pm. You start REALLY working, then you start feeling decent but then it’s 5pm or 6pm. It’s time to start getting home. You feel like you didn’t really get a lot done today so you’ll work late - just tonight - to catch up.
Here’s what I do when I’m feeling non-productive and guilty. Again, watch the video for more details, it’s not selling anything and I go into more detail. I need to just write a small book on this..
- Stop Checking Email in the Morning
- Don’t make Guilt Piles
- If it’s important, Schedule It.
- Measure, then Cut
- Do smaller things
- Let go of Psychic Weight
- Schedule Work Sprints
- Stop Beating Yourself Up
