Perhaps I should try safari-working, a term I've just invented, which is where you would spend your working day concentrating, but moving around the office space at different locations to suit the mood of what you're doing, forever hunting the elusive cheetah that is concentration. Perhaps it's 7.20 in the morning, I've been up since 4.30, got about 3 hours sleep and I'm waxing lyrical about nothing in a strong reaction to the strong coffee I just had. That's probably the most likely scenario.
I'm on my way to Budapest this morning, with a little laptop time in the airport, and hopefully on the plane, to do, well, laptopy things. I shall try to write some software. I shall also try to plan my week in Hungary, for I'll be there until Friday evening. It's quite a big trip for me. Owing to my just-in-time delivery of planning and organisation, I've not got the strongest of ideas about what I'm supposed to be doing when I get off the plane. I've had a lot of things to sort out on my mind and practically before I got to the point of sitting in Heathrow, and now my mind is clear of everything that's gone, I can try to focus on a clear week ahead.
It's fair to say that I have been stressed, but I don't feel stressed right now. I feel fairly motivated and ready for a good week. And my head has some interesting ideas about software in it too, which is nice.
Perhaps novelty is a good way to get the brain ready for action.
