How to get into programming mode October 4, 2007 8:52 amPosted by Doug McCaughan in : Daily Life
Have a ritual! Some morning I just want to stare at the computer and bemoan, "I’d rather be blogging." Today I have a video I want to make and other fun stuff like painting the kitchen but responsibility has to come first. How do you kickstart yourself? My ritual to start programming:
- Pour a cup of coffee
- Read a few blogs (get it out of the way) then CLOSE the feedreader
- Write a blog post
- Refill the coffee
- Light a stick of incense
- Get some music going
- Wear some ear plugs (kills the white noise and seems to make me focus better)
- Determine a milestone which will be my next break
- Begin typing like mad.
