Why is it that I either feel like I can put forth 100% effort at home OR 100% effort at work but not both every day?
Last week I was 100% on home projects... worked on them, got several done, and felt good but was coasting at work trying to decide what to work on next.
This week I'm 100% on at work getting some things done that needed to be addressed long ago - specifically clearing out the current upstairs server room in order to make it MY office and let our Software Support specialist finally have his own office. (I told him in December 2005 that we would soon move the servers and let him have the office we shared - it is still like that as of August 2008).
This week at home has been a nothing... a good nothing but a nothing. I've rescheduled all my GTD tasks, barely had the desire to do much of anything and spent the last couple of evenings watching the birds and the rain or laying around in the hammock. Not that those are BAD things and down time is a very real need I suppose but this happens quite often.
Where is that 200% (naturally, without drugs, hyper caffeine or other forced results)?
Maybe I need to start thinking 50/50 more often.
