I was testing a new development that I received from one of my developers. And it takes a little bit of time to test it, but it will save so much time you can't even imagine how much time it's going to save us in the long run.
Today I didn't know what the subject of the podcast was going to be, but just now I ran into a situation that I'm pretty sure a lot of you guys have run into during the course of your life.
I'm working on something and that's what happens when you're doing too many things at the same time. So you have so many things to do. And because of that, you don't know which one to start with and then you don't do anything and then you end up watching something or doing something that's completely unrelated and you don't do any of the of those tasks that you were supposed to do.
What to do when you have a brain freeze
So that's what just happened to me. I had the brain freeze. It's not that I didn't do anything during the whole day. I think I accomplished a lot today. But, you know, these last minute tasks. You know, when you're finishing up a project, these are the worst. The hardest ones are the small little parts that are at the end when you're close to the end of the project.
I have a tendency to bring it to ninety nine percent and then afterwards I may actually go and do something else and stuff, you know. So that's how I will be naturally wired.
And these last tasks, it's the same thing when you're moving house. Right. Moving the furniture and stuff, it's easy. Right. But when you have to move the small little things like, oh, let me move this small bag and stuff, that's the worst. And yes, I just had this kind of brain freeze where I didn't do anything for quite a while now, maybe like an hour or something.
You'll basically fall into this trap of starting too many things at the same time and then not knowing which one to prioritize. And then afterwards, well, you don't actually do anything. So what happens is that you know what? You go to bed, which is what I'm going to do, I. I'm going to go to bed, man, because I'm tired.
So how do you avoid this is, you know, trying to have one thing that you want to accomplish on that specific day. If you start too many things at the same time, it is not going to work. You will end up in this situation here where, it's analysis paralysis. Right.
There are so many things you have to do and you're like, yeah, you know what? Let's not do it. All right. So, yeah, I mean, for me today, to be honest, is going to be a, very quick podcast. I just have a brain freeze. So I need to relax a little bit. I might actually watch a documentary.
There is a documentary that I started on The Deep Blue Sea with David Attenborough. I absolutely love the guy. You know, he has a voice like your granddad, you know, so I'm going to bed, watch this, fall asleep.
And then tomorrow morning I’ll come back recharged because as much as you want to accomplish things, you need to understand that sometimes a good recovery will actually help you.
