Journal — August 27, 2020

We don’t have strongly formed or enforced language for the way we work. But I’d categorize this week as a cool down period. No heavy lifts on major projects. But a bunch of big wins on small bugfixes, code cleanups, and minor features that provide more context to the larger features that are already shipped.

Walking away in the afternoon is becoming a good habit. The commitment to abandon the currently pressing problems to focus on just walking is effective. The pressing problems become easier to grok when returning with fresh eyes.

School from home continues. Teaching my child about browser tabs, copy/paste, and turning-it-off-and-on again are an education in themselves.

Working from Things is an atrophied muscle. But I’ve made gains in the last two days that seem to be paying off. Getting a sufficient amount of tasks completed, with substantially less stress incurred.
