Week 5: How to do it all?
I can’t tell if my problem is lacking the discipline to stick to a plan (sometimes that is boring, and it means missing new opportunities) or over planning with too many projects1.
You talked about the idea of building a habit of adequacy for something like fitness, and I like how that reduces the pressure we can put on ourselves. I wonder where I can apply that in my life?
I’m loving my new job, and I’ve gone from living in my to do app to living in my calendar. I have a Calendly where people book time with me, and I learned pretty quickly I need to schedule “🧠 Deep Work” into my calendar to block out time to get actual work done or I’ll just end up in meeting after meeting after meeting…
The social component of organizing things at work adds a level of complexity I didn’t have when I was focused on KmikeyM for the last few years. It’s harder, but I kind of like it. :)
I mentioned on Friday I was feeling a little stressed and because I owed a few emails to people that had piled up while I was working on a new big project (hosting the company podcast) and my boss said something I really liked:
Always ask yourself: what would this look like if it were easy?
Then do that.
I almost rented an office space with Marcus, but we decided that since we’re both on calls all the time it would be hard to share an undivided space. So, since I didn’t move in to a new space I rearranged my home office and bought few things to make video calls and production easier.
After watching some videos from DSLR Video Shooter and Aaron Parecki I’m picking up a few things to build out my little home studio. I was tempted to go nuts but I’m going to pick things up a little at a time and make incremental improvements. The next big purchase will be an ATEM Mini video switcher and I’m not sure I need it but I love this panel of 32 custom LCD buttons…
I met up with a friend who is a co-founder of a new startup and talked him into a virtual hangout to talk “process.” I want to see people how other people organize chaos.
And I’ve always been really impressed with the process and digital asset management of my friend Norberto. I’m going to try to get some screenshots and descriptions of how he lays everything out to share with you.
Curious how living in limbo is until you find a new place to live!
honestly it’s probably both :(
