Busy people in general.
Sometimes – just sometimes – it’s okay to have a night off and do sweet FA. I guarantee that, when you do, your next day will be one of the most productive you’ve had in a long while.
Since last Friday, I’ve spent up ’til 11pm, each day, in front of my laptop screen, tapping away or researching. My only breaks have been to attend business-related meetings.
I got to 5pm, today, and my brain was just mush (I’d written three lines, of what I was working on, in two hours).
Tonight, I’m going to stick on a film, eat chocolate, have a beer, and watch football.
As has happened whenever I’ve used this tactic in the past, I will have a wonderfully productive day tomorrow, and my rested brain will be full of new ideas (hopefully ones that help me crack briefs).
