We know we’re all doing it.
We check our email another few times.
We put the polish on that last piece of code, work, idea so we can “jump” in tomorrow.
We try to replicate our old routines in the remote world but they don’t quite fit so then we try and figure them out a little more.
When it’s just you that’s remote, the extra isn’t as much as it normally is, but when everyone is remote, the extra grows, it grows because we’re all in the same boat and we’re all trying to figure it out.
Put the timer on your phone.
Turn off the computer when you leave.
Whatever it is you need to do, that gives you that 2 – 3 minute pause as we you wait for it to come “alive” so you can promptly shut it down and go – “I’m good till tomorrow.”
