Over the years I’ve struggled with getting work done in the summer. Maybe it’s the heat. Even when I’m inside with the AC cranking on high, everything seems to move a little slower. Perhaps it’s the fact that it is harder to move projects forward when everyone is out of town. Sometimes I think the more relaxed summer schedule is wreaking havoc on my productivity. Though I utilize the wi-fi at the pool while the girls have swim practice, surely I don’t coast through my to-do list as quickly with the sounds of summer in the background.
All of those things contribute, that’s for sure. I believe, however, this photo from yesterday tells the real story. There are just some days you simply must shut down the computer, go to the pool, swim for a bit then take a nap, like my buddy Carter. After a quick snack, he was able to get through his to-do list for the evening quite nicely: play, be cute, coo, diaper change, bottle, bed.
How do you manage to get work done in the summer when the kids are out of school and the temperature is rising?
