Vacation week last week! I was so busy playing catchup on Friday I didn’t get to my weekly review. That’s OK. Didn’t have much to clean up anyway.
I’ve had a fun new development that’s made doing work on a computer interesting. I noted it in a different thread, so I won’t get into the specifics here. This issue, which is dealing with computer-use related wrist/arm/shoulder/neck pain, has consumed a lot of my thought, especially in regards to finding workflows or equipment to help relieve the issue.
I’ve fallen off the wagon on this one. And, honestly, that’s been a pretty common struggle for me. I set out to accomplish a goal, usually requiring some sort of routine. After 2-3 weeks of shooting for it, I miss a few occurrences for various reasons. Then resistance sets in, making it ever-increasingly difficult to start at it again. Do you all have any suggestions for beating this?
I moved a lot during vacation last week. It was really nice. However, back at home, I have much less incentive to get out and go for a walk. I get in busy mindsets where I just don’t take a break.
Relaxation and Fun
Vacation was great. I gained a renewed perspective on life and work from a few days off. I kind of have another mini-vacation coming up with four days off from work around the Fourth of July holiday.
Additionally, I’ve started reading The Lord of the Rings trilogy of books. It’s been a series I’ve wanted to read for quite a while, and now focusing on relaxation, I am intentionally doing it.
I’ve thought of it. However, I’m not sure how much I like being tied into a specific notebook and pen like you are with Livescribe.
Oh has this ever been on my mind. I just upgraded my Mac in April, so I’m not quite sure I can justify the expense of an iPad Pro quite yet. I’m also evaluating Apple Notes as a full Evernote replacement with its OCR and document scanning features built in iOS 11 Notes.
I may go back to using Contexts only. I added a few more contexts, and it’s totally thrown my game off. ¯_(ツ)_/¯
Yes, this has been my experience exactly. You have to be selective on what you have up on the screen to monitor, though. Otherwise, it’s easy to get sucked into stuff that’s not your actual work!
I bet @shouit’s bacon will make it stop.
