Today was my third day as voluntarily unemployed and gig-less, and working on bootstrapping my own product business.
For various reasons, I slept really poorly last night; I woke up several hours before I was supposed to and couldn't fall asleep again.
Perhaps it was the stress of the current transition that's ongoing in my life.
As a result, I've been super tired all day.
I was a bit worried at the beginning of the day like "how is this going to go?"
Funnily enough it's been the most productive day I've had all week.
I realised that I've been so tired today that I haven't had the energy to maintain all that doubting self-talk that is normally on-going in my head.
"Am I working on the right thing?"
"Am I being efficient enough?"
"Have I passed my peak?"
"How about that other opportunity?"
"Should I get a regular job?"
"What if I fail? What does that say about me?"
I've been too tired to engage with any of that today.
And as a result, it's been the most productive day for me all week.
It's funny how productive you can be when you stop spending your energy on things that don't actually move you forward.
