Less Time = More Work
Since becoming a father about a year and a half ago, I’ve found that when I have less time to work, I tend to focus the time I have better. I’ve always worked better when a deadline is looming, but now that I have more family responsibilities, my work time is a bit more limited and I can’t spend time at my laptop deep into the evening.
Being a remote worker much of the time, and much of that time working from home, I now have to be laser focused on how I spend my time when I’m actually working. Surprisingly I think I’ve been more efficient at getting my work done in a more limited time frame, compared to how I was getting work done before when I essentially had an unlimited window if time every day.
