I’ve found that effectiveness comes from being able to drive two distinct states of mind at the right time.
1) Creativity, Innovation, Tweaking, Thinking.
2) Executing tasks. Ticking all the boxes.
The problem is when you get stuck in one state for too long. You need a healthy balance of both to be effective.
Usually, I have a specific environment for each one (e.g. a coffee shop for creativity or thinking), (a desk, computer and good chair for executing tasks). If you’re struggling to switch from one to the other, consider switching your environment and delegating an environment to a specific type of activity whenever possible!
