This is where I'd normally post the one hour saas daily update.
However yesterday I didn't really feel like working, it was a bit of a stressful day and thinking about uptime monitoring wasn't very appealing.
However I'm in the middle of this challenge and felt like I should push through and get stuff done. I sat down at my laptop with the intention of doing so.
I started the clock on the hour of work, and immediately knew I wouldn't get much done if I sat here for hour and tried to "get stuff done".
So what to do?
This weekend I tweeted about Podcastindex
I wasn't sure I was going to have the time to integrate Podcastindex into the Podcast Ping MVP, but here I was looking for something I wanted to do, not something I had to do.
So today I did something I wanted to do, and integrated Podcastindex!
I knew there would be days where I didn't want to work, and it would have been ok to just skip a day, but it feels good to make progress even if it's not on a core feature.
Doing this work actually energized me, and by the end of the hour I was feeling better and had I not used-up my time I probably wouldn't have got back to building those core features I had originally planned on.
Breaks are ok but making progress is better, especially when you're doing stuff you want to do.
Would love to know how you handle these kinds of days.
