I wrote an article about my thoughts on this a few months ago and it seemed to resonate with peeps since it's now been read nearly 100k times: https://blog.stephsmith.io/you-dont-need-to-quit-your-job-to-make/
I think the key takeaways are:
- Determine your focal points and eliminate noise outside of that
- Think of time in tiers
- Focus on "absolute" tasks
As for routines:
- Do the hard stuff in the morning or when you have the most energy
- Time block
- Measure/track your progress
Great read, thank you for sharing.
Awesome Steph! Thanks for this great read. It resonated strongly with my current situation 🙂 I’ll work on identifying my absolute tasks.
Glad it resonated!! Wishing you the best.
Great post. I can just sign this. Id did/do #fullstackjob beside having a 70h+ job and all is about time blocking, tracking progress, focus, and yes, do the hard stuff in the morning (I start around 3:30 am :-) )
Thank you!! I definitely don't start at 3:30... but amazing that you're able to ☺️
I'm probably also able to sleep earlier then you :-)
