Week 1: Diving into projects. Energized, interested, engaged. Tons gets done.
Week 2: Some basic maintenance on projects. Maybe a little less productive, but decent.
Week 3: Survival mode. (kids: fed, laundry: done, house: still here, school/work: attended, decently clad = success)
Week 4: Hate. The results of survival mode are beginning to wear on me. Trying desperately to get caught back up.
Here’s the question: since this seems to be my natural pattern, should I just go with it? Would it reduce my stress to just accept that this is the way I roll, and try to make the best of it? Or, would I benefit more from trying to equalize the work week to week, even if it tends to go against the grain?
