Breaking the cycle of work and poor productivity

Science FTW

We need time to rest, to recreate. Science says so. We need downtime to help us be most effective at the things that matter most to us in our lives. And for me, that’s my relationships with my wife and children, and doing my work well.

The Rules

Sunset over the Adur
  1. No working in the evenings(unless it’s completely necessary to be ready for the next day — but I should consider that a failure.)
  2. One blog post a day, on Coffee & Complexity. (Nothing to do with journalism or tech and culture. Just whatever comes into my mind — or whatever is on my mind.) Best posts can be cross-posted to Medium — if I feel like it — just as this one has been.
