Some of us are highly focused people. Others are scattered. Some like music in the background when working. Others need quiet. Some people need a desk. Others feel more comfortable on the floor. We are each wired differently and some of the form factors around us help us thrive or get stressed out.
In case you feel the pressure of executing your tasks or projects a certain way, don’t be. Align with how you are wired. David Allen’s Getting Things Done is a fantastic read on productivity It mixes the artfulness with the technique as you flow through a day of execution. Sometimes the right thing to do now is to clean the room. Sometimes it is doing the bills first. He speaks about how doing what your intuition tells you frees up a lot of energy and doing sometimes what you may feel is a force fit is actually counterproductive.
