We’re first time operators. It seems like everything on to do list is equally important, prioritization is tough. I found that when you have 3 flow clubs and those 3 hours are to get 3 things done. The anxiety around when am I doing this, when will things get done could be overwhelming. In the beginning, I worked hard and got 60% of the way on 5 things. Now I prioritize 2-3 big things and get them all done each week.
When there are lyrics it’s hard to concentrate because the music is good. I like to match tasks to the music. Lo-fi beats or instrumentals work for everything. I listen to chill piano instrumental when doing any kind of deep work that is thinking or writing related. For mindless tasks, I like to play house or disco, something fun.
