Distracted workday

2018 has been great so far, and the most productive I have ever been. It’s not just this week, the last two weeks have been productive. I have been trying a new work routine “watching random tv shows while working”.

I have tried Spotify and coffitivity before, but after a while I stopped enjoying these services.

I have been looking forward to my work days now.

I am going to continue this experiment for this month.

Hope you all have a great year ahead!
