I typed this while watching TV on Hulu. Maybe it was Castle, 24 or old episodes of whatever. I am also:
- On Twitter via TweetDeck and Echofon.
- Checking email.
- Reading and posting on lots blogs, using my Google reader.
- And since I work at home, I’ve got laundry going and am sitting in comfy pajamas. (There may even cookies in the oven.)
I like it because I am always thinking, always planning. The downside: I am always thinking, always planning. It’s also well past the work whistle and yet I’m still at it, the work-life boundaries getting blurred.
Do you have to give everything your full attention? Some projects, especially certain clients tasks, I absolutely shut it all down and focus on the task at hand…with maybe iTunes playing softly in the background.
