Stimulation

Really enjoying Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking by Susan Cain. Book review coming next week (probably.)

One thing I learned was the importance of monitoring and tweaking the amount of stimulation around me when I’m working. Little things like turning my music a little bit lower than usual and sitting in different ways that let me rest a little more solidly have made great impacts on how well I can focus while working from home.

Most of my home office strategies have revolved around eliminating distractions. This idea of measuring things in terms of stimuli and response has helped more than my general efforts like “no video content before 3pm” or “email only twice a day.”
