Learning to Work in Any Environment

You Have the Time to Do Everything You Want

I use to love having everything just right for working.

This routine worked brilliantly when I was in university because I was completely in charge of my time.

As I started off as a professional, life got a bit more complicated, but it was still fairly easy to schedule my day around my own needs and wants.

As my life has changed, priorities have shifted and been added, and my life is not so much a singular safari anymore.

I also have less control.

When I was younger, it was so easy to get everything I wanted done when and how I wanted, but now that this is not the case and it is actually very hard to continually work on myself, I had to adapt.

Now, when I have thirty minutes or so, I take advantage of it.

I will work in bed, even though I used to loathe the idea of working in bed, but now I see it as multitasking.

I will write in the evening and afternoon, something which I use to never do because I was a morning person.

I will work in those fifteen-minute pockets of time and if something will take less than five minutes, I never write it down anymore, I simply get it done.

By learning to adapt to my changing environment, I have allowed myself the ability to be consistent.
