The last couple of weeks I’ve been back on the tools… programming in C# and .NET… because a big project came in and we don’t have the time to hire someone for it.
Given that I haven’t developed anything in years, it’s been difficult.
But by far the worst part is the task switching from marketing to development. If I’ve got my head down in code and then try to take a call, I can barely think.
Switching sides of your brain several times a day is brutal. There seems to be a heavy switching cost on your brain and productivity.
Then I remembered how many people do this.
If this is a part of your daily life – there’s a couple of things you can try.
First is hire someone to do one of the pieces to get that off your plate so you can focus on whichever piece you like the most.
Second is time blocking. This is what I’m doing to get through this. Mornings are for “marketing” stuff, calls, this newsletter, etc
Afternoons (or arvos as we say in Australia) are for development.
This has made things MUCH easier
