I’ll admit I get a bit stuck at my desk sometimes when I’m trying to work. Sometimes I just legit need some time to think about a problem, and at those times I suppose I’m not even really stuck, even though it does still feel like it. But I think it often happens because I haven’t paused to get crisp answers to these questions, which I think are needed for direction and focus.
All of which I suppose comes back in a way to the old Drucker thing about knowledge workers having to manage themselves as well as do their jobs. I think lately for some reason I have a heightened awareness of the like cognitive load impact and productivity drag that introduces, even just from all the context-switching across various levels of thinking about my work. I think it’s something I always struggle with, and I don’t know what to do about it, but I do find it feels better just to have a little better insight into my situation with all this.
